Every Picture You Need is in the Hulton Picture Library.London: Clarke & Sherwell Ltd,  Stock Code: 146050
A brochure of photographs held at the Hulton Picture Library, arranging them into categories such as "Beautiful Britain", "Today and Tomorrow", and "Cheesecake and Charm". The archive held five million pictures "from every part of the earth, for every activity of man; much that is famous, much that is fresh and unpublished" (p. 1).
Sir Edward Hulton, the publisher of the famous photojournalist magazine Picture Post, began the Hulton Press Library in London in 1945. The archivist Charles Harvard Gibbs-Smith, of the V&A, used the collection to create the first ever indexing system for pictures.
The brochure is accompanied by a typed letter, signed by the librarian Mona Parrish in ink, to inform patrons of the services Hulton Picture Library had to offer. It was sent on occasion of the library acquiring the Topical Press photographic library and its archive of a quarter million negatives.
Quarto, pp. 12. Original photographic wrappers, front cover lettered in red, Hulton Picture Library red stickers to covers. With typed letter from librarian, signed.
Photographic illustrations throughout.
Stickers slightly creased, ex dono sticker and ink corrections to contact details on rear cover. A very good, sharp copy.
