Paris: Edition Arts et Métiers Graphiques, 1933. First Edition. Spiral bound quarto, sixty-four gravure plates. The best-known and most iconic of the great Paris photobooks, printed in a deep gravure so tactile it seems almost as if charcoal will rub off on the hands of the viewer. The cobblestone covers and endpapers are particularly evocative. (Parr / Badger, v1, 134; Roth 76-77). Former owner's innocuous book plate, signature that reads "Brassai", but likely not in the photographer's hand, light edge creases to the bottom corners, gently handled with minor wear; a solid, very good copy lacking serious defects in photo-illustrated spiral-bound wrappers.
