Presentation copy from the photographer, additionally inscribed by Dorothy Norman

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the photographer on the front free endpaper, "For Jack McTurner, in appreciation of all his kindness to us. Alfred Stieglitz, An American Place, Nov. 15 - 1940"; additionally inscribed by one of the contributors, and Stieglitz's lover, Dorothy Norman: "I am glad that you are to have this best 'of Stieglitz' - as I am glad that it exists in the world. I will be glad too if it gives Stieglitz to you in even more manifestations than at 1710. Dorothy Norman". It is uncommon to encounter this work with a double inscription; three signed copies have been traced at auction, all bearing Stieglitz's signature only.
