Paris - Robert Delpire Encyclopedie Essentielle - De first edition of Robert Frank's masterpiece with the 83 photo engravings in black/white complete - 174 pages
Bound: with original laminated cardboard covers designed by Saul Steinberg.
Size of the book 19.2 x 21.7 cm (oblong).
Some of the authors who contributed to this leading book: Simone de Beauvoir, John Dos Passos, John Steinbeck, Willim Faulkner etc.

The condition of this book is reasonably good; especially if taken into account that 'the back' of this book is very vulnerable: most copies are damaged or restored. This book has a nice back.
The book is about 60 years old and has some signs of use and is slightly yellowed. The covers are dented at the bottom, on the first page there are traces of an erased name and price. There is also a book stores sticker from where the book was purchased. (see photos!)

Will be shipped by insured mail.
