Callahan, Harry; Evans, Walker; Frank, Robert; Ishimoto, Yasuhiro; Friedlander, Lee & Others. PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE COLLECTION OF LASALLE NATIONAL BANK. Chicago, IL: LaSalle Bank/Distributed Art Publishers, 1995. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 188 pages. Fine/Fine.

Retrospective collection of photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books ever published. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The book was the very first title in the now-legendary Series by LaSalle Bank of its Permanent Photography Collection. LaSalle Bank was subsequently acquired by Bank of America, which promptly dispersed LaSalle Bank's photography collection, the largest and finest of its kind in the world, to its own offices. This book, which is now scarce, is now the only venue where the photographs remain intact as a collection. An austerely elegant production by The Stinehour Press: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by various contributors, a Who's Who of 20th-century and contemporary photography. Essay by Carol Ehlers. Introduction by Thomas C. Heagy. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ, which features an image by Thomas Struth, and with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents some of the greatest photographs ever taken in its entire history, from the Early Days of photography to the vibrant Present. The images have been culled from LaSalle Bank's 4, 000 photographs, listed in alphabetical order at the back. A nostalgia trip down memory lane and the fast lane. An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is a photography book classic. This is one of very few copies of the first and only edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Beware: Many copies available online have serious flaws yet are priced as though they had collectible value. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color plates. Some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century and our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO "CHICAGO PHOTOGRAPHS: THE LASALLE BANK PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTION" TITLE IN OUR CATALOG).
