Item #99509 Let Us Now Praise Famous Men: Three Tenant Families. James AGEE, Walker Evans.

Let Us Now Praise Famous Men: Three Tenant Families

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1941. First edition. Near fine in an about very good, somewhat spine-faded dustwrapper with some internal tape removed, a couple of seamless professional mends, and a couple of small chips. Issued in a small edition, an extended essay on rural poverty with arresting images by Evans. Aside from its place in literary history, the Walker Evans images have made it something of an iconic volume for students of photography. Parr and Badger, *The Photobook Volume 1*, p.144; Roth, *The Book of 101 Books*, p. 108-109. Item #99509
