FIRST EDITION OF IMAGES, SIGNED BY ANSEL ADAMS

ADAMS, Ansel. Images 1923-1974. Boston: New York Graphic Society, (1974). Oblong folio, original half black cloth, photographic endpapers, original dust jacket, original slipcase. $1200.

First edition, first printing, with 115 extended-range photolithographs, part of an undisclosed number prepared for subscribers by Time-Life Books and signed by Adams on a tipped-in leaf dated 1975, in original dust jacket and slipcase.

"Adams photographed landscapes with razor-sharp precision and an incomparable eye for the structure and detail of his chosen subject matter. He elevated the act of photography to a religious experience" (Icons of Photography, 96). For this stunning folio collection, "one of the handsomest books of its kind ever made," Adams chose 115 photographs of the Sierra Nevada Mountains: landscapes that offer an incomparable "purity and clarity of image" (New York Times). With introduction by Wallace Stegner. Issued simultaneously with a deluxe limited edition.

An about-fine copy in a lightly restored slipcase.
