Lohse, Remie.  The miniature camera in professional hands. New York: The Studio Publications, Inc., [copyright 1939]. 8vo (23 cm, 9.05"). 20, [4] pp.; 48 plts.
$25.00

First edition: Groundbreaking work from an early master of "miniature camera" photography. Lohse, a pioneer of candid action shots who was featured in MoMA's first-ever exhibition of photography, here discusses his experiences and techniques, then offers 48 of his most representative photographs, accompanied by captions recounting the circumstances of the shots and the equipment used. Frank Crowninshield supplied the foreword, and the subjects of the photographs include the Sara Mildred Strauss dancers, Pennsylvania coal miners, Jimmy Durante, Cotton Club dancers, Ziegfield Follies showgirls, Sing Sing prison inmates, Ethel Waters, Puerto Rican pineapple harvesters, and a variety of advertising and artist's models (including several nudes).

Publisher's spiral-bound printed paper wrappers; spine, front joint, and edges worn, cream-colored back wrapper showing light discoloration. Three photographic plates with small areas of paper adhesion and one plate partially affixed to preceding page with loss of portions of image. Imperfect (as is often seen with this item), still desirable.  (41118)   Please RESHELVE This.
