The Face of Minnesota (Signed First Edition).

Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Press, 1958. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. Szarkowski's second book, featured by Dave Garroway on the "Today" program which helped land it on the New York Times best seller list. A charming look at the people, places and events of Minnesota done to commemorate the centennial of the state. Includes numerous color and black and white images. A near fine copy in photo-illustrated boards in a very good dust jacket that is somewhat rubbed, with some minor wear and a small sticker abrasion to the front panel. Signed by Szarkowski on the front free endpaper in an early and legible hand. A very nice copy of an underappreciated book from this important photographer who went on to become one of the most influential museum curators of the 20th century.
