Men at Work: Photographic Studies of Modern Men and Machines.
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1932. First Edition. Small quarto. Hine's iconic images of the construction of the Empire State Building are the highlights of this book, which was originally intended as an industrial primer for children. While Hine rarely strayed from documenting social injustice, the modernist aesthetic employed in Men at Work is a fitting corollary to the real star of this book: the American skyscraper. (Open Book 108-109). Small blemish to green cloth boards, with minor rubbing to ends, else a near fine copy. With a remarkably sharp copy of the iconic jacket, with light rubbing and moderate wear to corners, else near fine.
