Boston: Virginia Adams, Yosemite National Park and Houghton Mifflin, 1950. Folio, 80 pp. Spiral-bound, black boards with white text, no dust jacket. 30 b&w photographs with their titles and dates printed opposite. Signed after the introduction by Dody Weston Thompson. With commentary from Weston via his journal kept during his time spent in Point Lobos. First edition. This book was lovingly made by Ansel and Virginia Adams, along with several other friends and relatives of Weston’s, to raise funds for him as he was rapidly succumbing to Parkinson’s disease. (Group f.64, p. 283). The photos were taken between 1929 to 1948, during Weston’s long love affair with the surreal beauty of Point Lobos’ eroded rocky landscape and weathered cypress trees. Signed by Dody Weston Thompson, a skilled photographer and literary critic, and the writer of the introduction and relative and admirer of Weston. (Item Id: 106847)
