First edition, first printing, of Fukase's masterpiece and by any standards one of the greatest modern photobooks of all.
Although not marked as such, this copy was deaccessioned from the John Teti Rare Photography Book Collection, New Hampshire Institute of Art.
Quarto. Original black cloth, raven in blind to both boards, titles to spine in blind, black endpapers. In the original brown card carton (a trifle rubbed).
Monochrome photographic illustrations throughout.
A fine copy.
Parr & Badger vol. 1 p 306.
