Edward Steichen, Sandburg’s brother-in-law was a force in modern photography, Sandburg in modern literature.

Steichen was a photographers photographer. Whether fashion or war, his images were groundbreaking and evocative. He was also Lillian Sandburg’s brother. Carl and Edward shared a lifelong friendship.

This book is a collection of images of people (Garbo, Swanson, Crawford, Chaplin), places (the Flatiron Building in 1905, the USS Lexington in 1943), and ideas.

A desirable book not only for Sandburg collectors, but also for the evocative photography itself – each a true work of art.

Signed on limitations page by both Sanburg and Steichen.

Two newspaper obituary articles and a Vogue magazine photo of Steichen pasted onto inside front and rear boards.

Very good condition; damp-staining has only slightly curled the first few pages, but appears on the boards and in the gutters of a few pages; gilding on spine and front board intact and bright. Inside front and rear boards have some staining.  Former owner signature.
