First trade edition of this landmark photobook. Parr and Badger: ìThe nineteenth-century photo book was primarily an archive in which the things of the world were stored and catalogued. Here, at the beginning of the twentieth century, one of the humblest, yet most essential of objects is catalogued as precisely, rigorously and objectively as any work by a 1980s conceptual artist" (Volume I, p.56). [Bitting p. 434].
