Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1941. First Edition. Thick octavo. Incredible, to think of it now, that thirty photographs bound in the front a book with little or no fanfare, and set against the backdrop of over 450 pages of verbose text, could have had such an influence on the entire history of documentary photography. But that Evans somehow captures in these thirty photographs the exact feeling that must have existed in this depression wracked part of Alabama is a testament to the true and unfailing genius of his vision, and of this book, despite Agee's best attempt to sabotage it. (Roth 108-109, Parr / Badger, v1, 44). Hint of foxing, else near fine in a very good plus jacket, lightly foxed at the verso, and faded on the spine (a problem endemic to this title).
