Alongside these images, and providing a deeper understanding of his working method, are many previously unpublished contact prints and variations of familiar shots taken from a different angle, differently framed, or as part of a sequence that constitutes a veritable short story on film. Beyond these, there are examples of Brassai's nude studies and magnifications of commonplace objects, the engraved photographic plates that he called transmutations, his drawings and sculpted pebbles, the graffiti he found so fascinating - indeed, everything to which he turned his imaginative mind throughout a long, productive life. 319 pages. 310 x 250 mm (12¼ x 9¾ inches).

    . Première édition américaine. Couverture rigide en toile noire, sous jaquette d'origine. Avec des contributions de Jean-Jacques Aillagon, Brassai, Gilberte Brassai, Roger Grenier, Henry Miller, Jacques Prevert, Werner Spies. Le livre et la jaquette sont en très bon état. L'intérieur de la jaquette se lit en partie comme suit : Voici les scènes emblématiques du Paris nocturne de Brassai, avec ses prostituées et ses voyous, ses travailleurs de nuit, ses cafés, ses dancings et ses théâtres ; voici les rues, les monuments et les ponts enveloppés de brouillard ; et voici l'élite littéraire et artistique de l'avant-garde parisienne, que Brassai comptait parmi ses amis. À côté de ces images, qui permettent de mieux comprendre sa méthode de travail, on trouve de nombreux tirages contact inédits et des variations de plans familiers pris sous un angle différent, cadrés différemment, ou faisant partie d'une séquence qui constitue une véritable nouvelle sur pellicule. Au-delà, on trouve des exemples d'études de nus et de grossissements d'objets banals, des plaques photographiques gravées qu'il appelait transmutations, des dessins et des galets sculptés, des graffitis qui le fascinaient, bref, tout ce à quoi Brassai a consacré son imagination tout au long d'une vie longue et féconde. 319 pages. 310 x 250 mm (12¼ x 9¾ inches).

It is perhaps symptomatic of the fashion industry that although the hair stylist and make up artist are both credited, the model herself is not names. Laroche (1921-1989) was one of the first designers to introduce separates (ie. jacket and trousers). His company continues today.

    . Une belle photographie en noir et blanc d'une séance de photos de mode pour Guy Laroche Haute-Couture. Photographie originale conservée sous passe partout. Modèle (anonyme) en veste de gabardine et chapeau de feutre. Au verso, le générique indique qu'il s'agit de la collection automne/hiver de Guy Laroche. Photographie en état neuf, maintenue sous un passe partout rigide avec un support cartonné fin. La photographie est pratiquement à l'état neuf. Le passe-partout est propre et net, avec seulement un peu de ruban adhésif sur les bords. Les dimensions de la photographie sont de 29,5 cm x 21 cm. Le passe-partout mesure 45 cm x 36 cm. Il est peut-être symptomatique de l'industrie de la mode que, bien que le coiffeur et le maquilleur soient tous deux mentionnés, le mannequin lui-même n'est pas nommé. Laroche (1921-1989) a été l'un des premiers créateurs à introduire des vêtements séparés (c'est-à-dire une veste et un pantalon). Sa société existe encore aujourd'hui.

A little bumping to the corners. Slight handling to the binding only. An inscription has been scratched away on a front end paper. Still a lovely copy. The first 14 photos document the visit of Princess Margaret who was then 24 years old, the next 6 photos concern the Princess and the Duke of Gloucester, the last 8 photos the Duchess of Kent (Princess Marina) and her eldest son (Now Prince Edward, Duke of Kent). Single album, or produced in a very few copies. Although this is a private collection, the indications are that it was produced by press photographers from the Daily Mail. To the title page, the address is Northcliffe House, London. EC4 - which was the headquarters of the Daily Mail at the time. A couple of the photographs can be identified as being used in the press at the time. Also identified in the pictures are Philip Rosenthal, of Rosenthal Porzellan, Germany.
