EGGLESTON, WILLIAM. William Eggleston's Guide, New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1976. Square octavo, first edition, pp. 112, brown pebble-grain leatherette boards with gilt lettering on top and spine, mounted color photo on top. Essay by John Szarkowski. This was the catalog for Eggleston's controversial show at the Museum of Modern Art, which was panned by many critics for its use of color. Considered a breakthrough in photographic art, see Roth pp. 234-5, Parr & Badger v.1 p. 265. They wrote that this show and book 'heralded the birth of colour photography, or more accurately, it marked the moment when it was perceived as artistically respectable.' They add that Szarkowski's essay here is one of his most adroit. Condition of this book: Minor spine slant, age toning at edges. Boards near fine with a few faint areas of rubbing at extremities.
