Nothing Personal

James Baldwin

FIRST EDITION OF AVEDON AND BALDWIN’S NOTHING PERSONAL, BOLDLY INSCRIBED BY AVEDON

AVEDON, Richard and BALDWIN, James. Nothing Personal. New York: Atheneum, 1964. Folio, original white laminated boards, original slipcase. $1850.

First edition of an artistic collaboration documenting the face of America in the 60s, boldly inscribed: “For Bob with gratitude always, Dick.”

Avedon’s second book of photographs, with text by James Baldwin, presents “a wide cross-section of images of Americans, from an elderly ex-slave to former president Dwight Eisenhower to the Everly Brothers to patients in a mental ward” (McDarrah, 22).

Slipcase with a bit of soiling and minor wear to extremities. Book near-fine, with one gathering expertly reattached and faint smudging to boards. An attractive inscribed copy.
