About This Item

Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1974. Original gelatin silver print photograph (31 x 23 cm), printed by Adams from the negative. Dry mounted on archival board (42 x 34 cm). Fine. Print number 169 of 1000 numbered prints (500 numbered in Roman, 500 in Arabic), signed by Adams on the mount, and with certificate of limitation and technical details on verso. Published to accompany the deluxe, limited issue of IMAGES 1923 - 1974, of which a copy is present, also numbered '169' and signed on the colophon by Adams. The book is blemished, as at some point early on a previous owner excised the front free endsheet, quite likely to remove a presentation inscription, taking with it a significant area of the surface of the pastedown. It is otherwise very good and sound in dust jacket, with both enclosed in a somewhat faded and rubbed half calf oblong folio clamshell box, with the two short joints of the top lid at the fore-edge broken. In other words, a beautiful, virtually untouched copy of the signed print, with a flawed copy of the book tagging along.
