This is the Special Collector's Edition limited to 100 copies SIGNED by Edna Bullock for the estate of Wynn Bullock. This is copy number 3. This edition was originally to be accompanied by an original photograph by Wynn but this is not included with the book. The book is in fine condition as is the dust jacket although the jacket is price clipped as were all the jackets on the limited editions. The cloth slipcase is also fine. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 119 pages; With a Preface by L. Carrington Goodrich.

Reprinted for the first time since its original publication twenty years ago, The Face of China is an evocative and candid collection of some of the first photographs made in that country. Along with descriptive captions, these images describe the daily life and surroundings of an era now passed.

The people are as seen through Western eyes, and the places are as traversed by foreigners. These early photographers were explorers and adventurers. They lugged huge cameras with heavy glass plates over rugged, unfamiliar terrain. Interspersed throughout the book are passages from significant texts and travelers' diaries, observations and opinions that echo and illuminate the images.

For many Chinese, these photographers were the first white faces ever seen, and they carried with them previously undreamed-of contraptions. For all this, there is an unguarded air to many of the portraits, and the street scenes have the candid look of today's street photographer.; Signed by Family Member

3 Devynck, Daniele & Claire Freches & Anne Roquebert & Richard Thomson Toulouse-Lautrec
New Haven Yale University Press 1991 0300051905 / 9780300051902 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Green cloth, a few small areas along lower edge and two on upper edge where white is showing from insect activity. Dust jacket has slight wear. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 557 pages; The world of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was inhabited by denizens of the street and night life of fin-de-siecle Paris - with its dance halls, bars, brothels and circuses. Portraying this world in his paintings, drawings , posters and prints, Lautrec created a vibrant body of art that earned him lasting renown. Lautrec was born in 1864 into one of the oldest noble families in France. At the age of 13 it was discovered that he suffered from a genetic defect that prevented the bones in his legs from continuing to grow. Small in stature and singular in appearance, Lautrec lived his life with a passionate intensity, choosing to dwell among the Bohemian and exotic characters he depicted in his canvases. He died at the age of 37 after excessive drinking had severely debilitated and finally destroyed him. During his short career, however, he not only painted, drew, and designed posters, but also worked with stained glass and bookbindings. The essays in this book discuss the full range of Lautrec's career and artistic activities - from his youthful sketchbooks and examples of applied art to the seminal pictures and posters at the end of his life. The essays also focus on the cultural milieu and social history of the period, analyzing the marketplace in which Lautec worked, the implications of his exhibitions and his association with other artists, designers and literary figures. The book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London from October 10, 1991 to January 19, 1992 and at the Grand Palais in Paris from February 18 to June 1992.
