Paris: 80 Photographies de Moï Ver.

Paris: Éditions Jeanne Walter, 1931. First Edition. Quarto. Number 682 of 1000 press-numbered copies. Simultaneously one of the greatest avant-garde photobooks and one of the most insightful Parisian paeans; Parr & Badger remark on the absolute gulf that stands between the dynamism of Moï Ver's Paris—with its complex photomontage techniques and kinetic layout—and the conservative stillness of Atget, whose monograph on the city was published, remarkably, only one year prior. Introduced with text from Fernand Léger. (Roth 70-71; Parr / Badger, v1, 128-129). Trace foxing to the top edge of textblock, else a beautiful, close to fine copy. In plain wrappers, enclosed by the distinctive French-fold jacket that boasts the masterful superimposition of smokestacks over stone colonnade; also close to fine. Housed in custom cloth slipcase with a matching lettered chemise. A memorable copy of this consensus high-spot.
