  A BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE COLLECTION OF SAM WAGSTAFF — By SAM WAGSTAFF — 1st Edition/1st Printing, 1978 Softcover with Photographs of Robert Frank, Charles Marville, Lewis Carroll and Salvador Dali

 Publisher: Gray Press, New York (1978)

In very well preserved condition. Light shelfwear to softcover boards. The boards and binding are solid and tight save for light spot of old damp stain on the front board. The pages and photographs are crisp and clean. 

First edition of this important and thought provoking collection of photographs, all taken from Wagstaff's collection, published to coincide with the Corcoran Gallery exhibition held the same year. Features images by Robert Frank, Charles Marville, Edward Woods, Lewis Carroll and George Henry Fox, among many others. Wagstaff is perhaps best known as Robert Mapplethorpe's life long companion, but more importantly, under Mapplethorpe's tutelage, Wagstaff came to believe that photography was the most under-appreciated and undervalued of all mediums. Wagstaff collected heavily throughout the 1970s and the entirety of his collection, which eventually ran to over 2,500 images, was eventually sold to the J. Paul Getty Museum. -AbeBooks
