50 Jahre moderne Farbfotografie, 1936-1986 (German/English Edition) [Jan 01, 1986]
My last copy, except my personal copy, of one of my favorite books.
50 Years Modern Color Photography, 1936-1986/
50 Jahre moderne Farbfotografie, 1936-1986
(German and English Edition) [Hardcover] by Manfred Heiting, DGPh., Frankfurt
I am reducing my photography book library that I have acquired over several decades.
This book is one of the gems. This is quite a rare book in the United States. I have never seen copies available for sale in the US. The book was published in Germany for sale in the German market at Photokina in 1986. The only reason I have them is because in 1986 I realized that it is a wonderful book. I brought a case to the USA from Germany. I gave many of them away. I am keeping one copy and have a few left I would like to sell.
Condition: like new. They have been stored in the original packaging since 1986.

Great Photographers of the American West by Weber 11 x 14 inches 112 pages, 1993. $18
Excellent quality reproductions on high-quality coated paper. Beautiful Dust-jacket.
This volume features more than 80 glorious images of the pristine beauty and native inhabitants of the American West taken by the greatest photographers of their time: Ansel Adams, Edward S Curtis, Alexander Gardner, Laura Gilpin, William Henry Jackson, Eadweard Muybridge, Timothy O’Sullivan, and others. i.e. Solomon D. Butcher, F. J. Haynes, John Hillers, Andrew J. Russell, William Soule, Adam Clark Vroman, Ben Wittick.
In the second half of the 19th century, photographers ventured into the American West to record for posterity its majestic pristine beauty, unusual land formations, native inhabitants, and development. By responding to the nation's growing interest in the West, these intrepid photographers not only shaped and influenced America's image of herself at the time, but also left us in future generations a bountiful legacy of visual images that provide a remarkable historic record of the land and its people.
In an attempt to preserve dramatic views of nature prompted the work of Carleton Watkins, and Edward Muybridge, who first traveled to Yosemite from San Francisco in the 1860. These and other photographs of the grandeur of the West invoke the nation's highest aesthetic ideals, deepest religious convictions, and optimism about the future of America.
At the same time other photographers, a number of whom had honed their skills by documenting the Civil War, went West to join government railroad-sponsored expeditions. Timothy O'Sullivan Andrew Russell, Alexander Gardner, William Henry Jackson, John Hiller's, and others recorded the region's magnificent mountain scenery and unique wonders, heroically risking their lives to capture for science impasse clarity the West distinctive features. Decades later, Ansel Adams assume the mantle of the pioneering landscape photographers.

Principles of Color Photography, Evans, Hanson, and Brewer, first edition 1953. 6x9 inches. 710 pages with dust jacket. $75
This book presents the theory behind color photography, providing a basis for understanding its principles and unique problems. In this book, three Eastman Kodak scientists provide a valuable basis for understanding the problems of color photography. The main emphasis is on understanding principles which will not only give the reader a solid command fundamentals will also help them appreciate the novel problems involving color photography. This is the only available book on the subject which stresses the development of basic theory.
The sections on vision will appeal particularly to engineers and scientists in color television and in other fields in which practical problems relating to colorimetry and psychological aspects of color vision are encountered. The sections on sensitometry will appeal to those concerned with measuring and describing images in color, including the construction of instruments for such measurements.
The analysis and description of methods of attaining color and images and combining them to obtain color processes is analytical and should be of tremendous interest to all scientists as it is one of the few attempts which have been made to systematically classify color processes. Here also is a review and analysis of the development of reproduction theory for color photographic processes, of general scientific i love nterest and especially interesting to those concerned with the theory of color reproduction and related fields.
The knowledge included here regarding color and color reproduction is timeless and is the basis for modern color devices.
