REAL FANTASIES Edward Steichen's Advertising Photography

(Berkeley, Los Angeles and London: University of California Press, 1997).

FIRST EDITION IN PRISTINE CONDITION. During the 20's and 30's of the last century Edward Steichen was one of the most successful photographers in the advertising industry, but his status as one of the era's greatest fine-art photographers now overshadows his commercial work entirely. Ms. Johnston's book gives those works, which regularly appeared in popular magazines like Vanity Fair, Vogue and Lady's Home Journal, some much deserved, and long overdue, attention. Item #29449

First edition and first printing. Extensively illustrated throughout, including plates in colour. Tall 8vo, in the original brick cloth, the spine gilt lettered, and in the original dustjacket. xxii, 351pp. A very fine copy, both the book and jacket essentially as new and pristine.
