Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Keith De Lellis Gallery New York from January 19 to March 25, 2000. Presents Marvin E. Newman's "Seven Photo Essays". Among the finest photographs ever taken in the 20th century: "Chicago Snow Scenes" (1950); "Coney Island Beach Scenes" (1952); "The Circus" (1954); "Halloween" (1955); "Wall Street And The New York Stock Exchange" (1956-57), a breathtaking panoramic top shot that prefigures the work of Andreas Gursky; and "Rue St. Denis Paris" (1960). The magnificent six-page foldout of the legendary Mickey Mantle in action on the baseball field (Pages 9 to 13) is the centerfold of this keepsake of a catalog. An absolute "must-have" title for Marvin E. Newman collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and inscribed in black ink-pen by the photographer: "For Paul, Always a great friend, Marvin E. Newman". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is Paul Berlanga, the Chicago-based photography expert and important artist/painter. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The only other signed copy is also from us. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tonally rich plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
