§ First editions. "Eugène Atget was a commercial photographer who worked in and around Paris for more than thirty years. When he died in 1927 his work was known only to a few archivists and artists... In 1968 The Museum of Modern Art acquired a collection of some five thousand prints and plates which the American photographer Berenice Abbott had purchased had purchased from Abbott's estate in 1928... The four volumes in this series correspond to the authors' sense of the principal issues, defined in terms of subject matter, that are presented in Atget's work. The illustrations are printed with three offset impressions to ensure fidelity to the original photographs." (Abstract). Item #124765
