First edition of Budapest-born photographer André Kertész’s love letter to his adopted city. One of the most innovative and prolific photographers of the 20th century, Kertész is widely regarded for pioneering advancements in photojournalism and the composition of what would become the "photo-essay." Dedicated to his wife Elizabeth, with whom he moved to New York in 1936, this photobook comprises 184 images of parks, buildings, billboards, streets, and rooftops captured over the course of 40 years. Lavishly illustrated with gravure plates. Edited by Nicolas Ducrot. Mild sunning to board edges; unclipped dust jacket lightly toned with light edgewear. Very good. Item #6822
