About

GILMAN COLLECTION. Photographs from the Collection of the Gilman Paper Company. Curated by Pierre Apraxine, with plates by Richard Benson, and notes to the plates by Lee Marks. 480 pp. Illustrated with 199 offset lithographs after photographs plus offset lithographic frontispiece. Large folio, bound in original half maroon calf over linen covered boards, in a slipcase. [Verona: Stamperia Valdonega for] The White Oak Press, 1985. A superbly printed book, presenting, for the first time, two hundred images from one of the world's important photography resources. These images, selected by Pierre Apraxine, curator of the Gilman collection, illustrate the work of over one hundred photographers. The scope ranges from the experimental daguerrotype of the early 1840's (by Samuel F. B. Morse et al.), to the pioneering photographs by Robert Frank and Diane Arbus of the mid 1950s and 1960s. The edition was limited to 1200 copies, and has been described as "a tour-de-force of offset lithography... In this instance Richard Benson painstakingly produced fine line-screen negatives for offset printing of each black and white image in four to six colours. The Gilman Paper Company bought and installed an offset printing press in Benson's home specifically for this project. Benson has written: 'this book has always been intended to be as excellent and accurate to the originals as possible.' The 199 plates of this book bear eloquent witness to the achievement of this lofty goal." As new.
