Notes

First US edition, originally published in France on 15 May 1958 by Robert Delpire as part of its Encyclopédie Essentielle series. In the French edition Frank's photographs were accompanied by text by authors such as Simone de Beauvoir, Erskine Caldwell, William Faulkner, Henry Miller and John Steinbeck. In this edition the photos are not accompanied by text; Kerouac's controversial introduction was added which further cemented Frank's position as bete noir of US photography.
