1st ed., no. 214 of 900 copies; 9" x 11", printed white wrappers. xxvi text with 84 illustrations (60 heliotypes, and 7 in-text illustrations). Tissue guards are occasionally toned. Covers toned with scattered spotting, 2” tears at top of hinge and bottom of spine. Interior shaken but intact. Ex-libris the Stendahl Art Gallery, Los Angeles. This volume was a well-used reference copy in the gallery’s reference library, hence the rough condition. Until its recent closure, the Stendahl Gallery was one of America's oldest continuously operating private art galleries. Art from the Stendahl collections found a home in The Louvre and many other major institutions throughout the world. Upon closing the gallery, the family donated a significant collection of photographs and documentation to the Getty Research Institute.
