Paris: Pierre Seghers, Editeur, 1949. Boards. Very Good/Very Good. A wonderful Association copy: WARMLY INSCRIBED BY ROBERT DOISNEAU TO HIS AGENT CHARLES RADO (owner/manager of Rappho Agency in Paris) on the half-title. A solid copy to boot of the 1949 1st edition, in its uncommon pictorial dustjacket. Tight and VG (light soiling at the panels and along the spine) in a bright, VG to VG+ dustjacket, with light chipping at several spots along the spine. Still though, attractive and very presentable. Octavo, 130 first-rate Doisneau heliogravures. Widely considered Doisneau's finest work, cited by both Andrew Roth and Martin Parr for its brilliant look at the suburbs ("La Banlieue") of Paris.
