First edition, first printing, of the author’s photoreportage in Texan penitentiaries. Loosely inserted is the rare catalogue of the exhibition of the same title, which was held at the Institute for the Arts, Rice University, Houston, Texas, in 1970.

Oblong quarto. Original white cloth-backed light grey cloth boards, titles to spine in black. With the dust jacket. Small ownership signature to front free endpaper. Short nick to fore edge of front board, tiny abrasion mark to bottom margin of one leaf. An excellent copy in a lightly rubbed and marked price-clipped jacket with one tiny split.
