First Edition. Hardcover. 8 3/4" X 11 1/8". viii, 136pp. Mild edgewear to price-clipped dust jacket, with light sunning to spine and some creasing and bumping to extremities. Black cloth over boards, with spine lettered in gilt. Mild edgewear to binding, with dust soiling to edges and some bumping to extremities. Binding is firm and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. A very presentable first printing of this examination of the photographer Eadweard J. Muybridge's work when visiting Guatemala in 1875, during a critical moment of transition when two historical periods briefly interlocked. From rear flap: "This book is a valuable contribution to the study of the Latin American past in general, and the Guatemalan past in particular, besides being a rare collection of unique, high-quality photographs from the last century." Very good / very good. Item #3871
