Steichen: The Photographer.
Text by Carl Sandburg. With full-page reproductions of photographs by Steichen, including a self-portrait frontispiece and much of Steichen's classical imagery, printed in handsome sepia tones. 4to, black cloth with the gilt-lettered title on the front cover, lightly worn; scattered faint soiling internally. Roth 54; Auer 143; Hasselblad 86. FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 925 NUMBERED COPIES SIGNED BY STEICHEN AND SANDBURG, AND ADDITIONALLY DOUBLY SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY STEICHEN.

Notes: Douglas Glass purchased this book directly from Doubleday & Company Publishers in London in 1951. The invoice is enclosed. The book appears to have been first inscribed to a J.W. McKinley "in appreciation of his [...] tireless enthusiasm and devoted labor for the Camera Club," and then to Douglas Glass, "This is a second placement with a colleague I hope this one sticks," in 1950.
