About

BRASSAI. Paris de Nuit. With text by Paul Morand. Illustrated with 62 photographs by Brassai and photographic endleaves. 8vo., bound in original wrappers picturing a Brassai photograph, title printed in red, spiral bound, in a black cloth folding box. Paris: Édition Arts et Métiers Graphiques, n.d. [December, 1932]. One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century photographic literature, often reprinted. Paris de Nuit perfectly captures the feeling of Paris during the era of the Depression with darkened gardens, deserted squares, ladies of the evening and smoke-filled bars and cafés. This extraordinarily evocative book is now very difficult to find in collectible condition. Minor wear, but a very good copy.
