Very Good Only. No Jacket. Folio-over 11" X 14" Bound in stiff dark blue wraps, stamped in gray and white. The book shows curling to the front edge and a two inch crease to the bottome of the back panel. Still, an acceptable copy of this rather scarce first edition of this important book by Brassai. 64 pp. Priced accordingly.
VG-(DJ is corner clipped; spine of dj has some white paint on it; book is otherwise good. ) Black cloth, black & illus. dust jacket, 64 pp., many BW illus. "While 'Secret Paris' portrayed the interior, erotic side of the city, 'Paris by Night' gives us the exterior: the empty streets, the buildings, the vistas under the Paris moon, photographed in all their monumental beauty and loneliness. It is a book that captures the city as no other book has." (dj).
This is an accurate reproduction of the original heliogravure edition and I think it looks great. Rich tonality, and nice weight of paper and a slight warm black that makes it even nicer. Brassai's work is even more remarkable when you consider the lenses and films he had to choose from.
