Alvin Langdon Coburn Rare More Men of Mark Rare 1922 Photography 1st Ed Vintage

More Men of Mark by Alvin Langdon Coburn was published in 1922 by Alfred A. Knopf New York.

  • First Edition
  • 23 pages of text with List of Portraits
  • 33 tipped in photographic portraits of famous personalities of the time, from all walks of life, including a self portrait, with tissue paper guards which are all in place.
  • Original linen backed patterned paper boards; paper spine label.
  • 9-3/8" x 12-1/4" Quarto
  • Portraits and other pages are in very good condition. Spine shows foxing, white spots (more on back than front), slight wear. Boards have rubbed edges with some paper chipping. Cover corners are bumped and curve inward. A few scattered brown dots of foxing occur mostly on the tissue guards, the largest number are on the bottom edge of the Thomas Hardy page and its tissue guard (tissue also has a tiny hole). Tissue has a small tear at top of Ezra Pound page. A few scattered tissue creases. Tissue is smooth over portraits but has wrinkles at edges from lack of pressure as book is thicker in middle where the portraits are tipped in.

    Alvin Langdon Coburn (1882 1966) was an early 20th-century American photographer who became a leader in the development of American Pictorialism, in which the photographer manipulates the outcome of the photograph, creating his own vision rather than merely recording what exists. He became the first major photographer to employ elevated viewpoints and also made some of the first completely abstract photos with his own kaleidoscope-like invention that he called a Vortoscope and the photos taken with it called Vortographs. His imagery was used as illustrations in such quality books as the novels of Henry James; The Door in the Wall by HG Wells; and his own books, Men of Mark (1910) and More Men of Mark (1922).
