One of the publisher's series of books documenting the work of the American photographer. One hundred+ portraits in 230 reproductions because, 'All the photographs in this book were scanned at full size from Berenice Abbott's original glass plates. Abbott herself conceived a book of her portraits, carefully deciding the cropping of each image. This book shows two consecutive reproductions of each photograph: the first shows Abbott's cropping, the second reveals the entire glass plate.' Edited by Ron Kurtz and Hank O'Neal, introductory essay by the latter.
