U. S. CAMERA 1941

(New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1940).

FIRST EDITION AND A FINE COPY OF THE AMERICAN STORY TOLD IN PHOTOGRAPHS IN TWO VOLUMES. "This is a thrilling story, a saga more grand in performance than any of the fabled conceptions of older lands. Only in part is it captured. But surely a midwest farm is part of it; a metropolis is part of it; a young immigrant who became a great photographer because he loved this land, is part of it. So, too, is the wondrous beauty of this land; the despair of people who find it blowing away from them. War, unfortunately, is part of it; all the people who will face war to defend our heritage another part." - From the Introduction. Item #28877
