Description:
Tokyo: Yugensha, 1987. Limited first edition, one of 500 unnumbered copies, with 81 finely screened full-page halftones. Folio, original gray cloth, cloth covered slipcase with halftone print affixed to the cover; original shipping box. In fine condition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Robert Frank. Flower Is can be regarded as "an eminently fitting apotheosis for stream-of-consciousness photography It is primarily a memorial volume to Frank’s daughter, who was killed in an airplane crash in 1974 The whole tenor of the book is forlorn, which may be the adjective that best describes Frank’s work as a whole It reveals an artist at the height of his powers but hardly at peace with the world or himself" (Parr & Badger).

Description:
New York: Aperture, 1978. First edition. Oblong quarto, original cloth with silver titles to the spine. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Lengthily inscribed by Chauncey Hare on the title page. As noted historian and social observer Theodore Roszak wrote "these images chronicle not just the spiritual desolation at the heart of an industrial society, but also reflect Hare's own despair. Prior to taking up photography he worked as an oil industry engineer for over 20 years, becoming increasingly alienated from his work and the attitudes it forced him to take. A chilling body of work that is a harsh indictment of the consequences of industrial production and the alienation it produces in the lives of individuals." "An interesting figure who deserves a renewed focus of critical attention" (Parr & Badger).
