Evans, Walker, Many Are Called, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1966, First Edition, First printing, 8vo (8.75" x 7.25"), Hardcover in DJ, black cloth with cover/spine titles in white, NEAR FINE VERY GOOD. Unclipped, lightly rubbed, some creasing and the usual edgewear to the black jacket.

178 pp. Introduction by James Agee. A collection by legendary documentary photographer Walker Evans, of his brilliant New York City subway portraits. Mostly taken in the late 30s & early 40s, they capture the individualism of each of a very diverse group of people. Listed in Andrew Roth’s The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the 20th Century, which states that Evans took the photos at 1/50 of a second with the lens peeking through his a buttonhole. Evans had made over 600 photographs and had begun to edit the series. This book remained unpublished until 1966 when The Museum of Modern Art mounted an exhibition of Evans's subway portraits. Erratum slip laid in.

A SCARCE and highly sought after book in unusually lovely condition.
