First edition, first printing, in the scarce jacket, recording the first one-man show given to a photographer at MoMA. Only 5000 copies printed. "American Photographs holds a well deserved place at the top of the pantheon, and should be studied assiduously by any photographer attempting the tricky business of compiling a coherent photobook. It is a complex, elliptical, hugely ambitious work, exemplifying all the qualities that Evans demanded from serious photography... it remains a great work of art, for it showed us all - including the photographer himself - just what might be accomplished by the photobook" (Parr & Badger).
