"In 1995, the National Gallery of Art acquired an important collection of photographs spanning the history of photography. The pictures had been assembled by David and Mary Robinson, two brilliant and astute collectors, during the 1980's and 1990's, photography's Golden Age of collecting. Reproduces seventy-three of the collection's most ravishing images. Contains three essays on the nature of collecting by Sarah Greenough, Curator of Photographs at the National Gallery of Art, David Robinson, and Jeffrey Fraenkel" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is a contemporary photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. 73 duotone plates. Some of the greatest photographers in its history. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO "SEEING THINGS", "FURTHERMORE", AND OTHER FRAENKEL GALLERY TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1881337235. $100.00
