Paris de nuit.Paris, Edition Arts et Métiers Graphiques, 1933 Stock Code: 122385
NotesFirst edition, first impression. In this work "Brassaï became a master at drawing luminosity from the darkness. The swaths of wet paving stones featured on the covers and endpapers of Paris de Nuit gleam like pale beacons in the streetlight. Inside, Brassaï explores the city, beginning with its broad vistas and grand public spaces and gradually moving into the demimonde he knew so intimately" (Roth, p. 76).
Quarto. Original spiral-bound photographic stiff card wrappers, front wrapper lettered in red. Housed in a custom grey cloth solander box.
With 62 full-page photogravures.
A little rubbing to edges of wrappers, loss to a single punch hole on front wrapper. An exceptional copy of this notoriously fragile work.
