A fine unread copy in a fine dustjacket of a large book on the great photographer who took great photos of the underbelly of New York City in the 30's 40's & 50's. His photos were vivid, real and harsh and he coined the famous term the naked city which was the title of his first book of photographs. He documented the murders, crimes, and lurid dramas all around him for the newspapers of the day. Brilliant work. Published in conj. with a large exhibition of his work, the book is nicely printed and includes essays. No one took photos like Weegee.
