Description: Limited texts are by Beaumont Newhall & Mary Steichen Calderone and are signed by both authors. Illustrated with 12 gorgeous large photogravures, loose as issued, with tissue guards, in a folding two-piece natural silk folio case. United States: Aperture, 1981. Limited edition, number 315 of 500 printed on heavy Rives BFK paper. Plates are all fine but the outer slipcase is somewhat dust-soiled and has a small 1 inch ink stain on rear cover; inner cloth slipcase is clean but the white board sleeve holding plates is cracked at edges. Fine in a very good case.

Comments: The images were made by means of the Talbot-klic photogravure process. 11 of the plates were made using the dust-grain technique and one plate using a specially prepared screen. The plates were hand-pulled at Atelier de Taille Douce in Switzerland. Prospectus laid-in.

I flew to NY from CA a couple of weeks ago, and while walking 59th, happened upon Argosy... Amazing! I had very little wiggle room in my time between meetings, but I made sure I came back the next morning, also. I'm so impressed, and reading about the family history of the store impressed me even more. Thank you for having such a marvelous bastion of knowledge there in the city! I was truly impressed. - Wil S.
