104aa. Lorentz, Pare. The River. Stackpole Sons, 1938. 1st edition. This publication is the book version of the landmark Great Depression era documentary film, The River, written and directed by Pare Lorentz for the Farm Security Administration. It tells the story of the huge Tennessee Valley Authority, a New Deal project that harnessed river power to produce electricity, control floods, and provide irrigation for farm lands. The book text is taken verbatim from the film narration, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for poetry. The photographs are taken either from the film, shot by cameramen Willard Van Dyke and Floyd Crosby, or are by government photographers working in the same area where the film was made. The photographs, not individually credited in the book, were gathered by Charles Krutch, a TVA photographer. For excellent information about the film, see the excellent website Reaping the Golden Harvest: Pare Lorentz, Poet and Filmmaker. Lorentz also did other films for the FSA, of which the first was The Plow That Broke the Plains and the second was The River. Together with the images by still photographers such as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Arthur Rothstein, John Vachon, Marion Post Wolcott, Edwin Rosskam, and others, the FSA films educated the public about the agriculture conditions in the United States during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the innovative federal government programs that were implemented to address these problems.

Edweard Muybridge, The Human Figure in Motion. Dover, 1955. 196 pages containing over 4,700 individual photographs of men, women and children, mostly nude and a few partially clothed, chosen for their value to artists, doctors, and researchers. The largest selection of Muybridge's motion studies of the male and female form ever published in book form, these photos depict 163 different types of action and were taken at speeds ranging up to 1/6000 of a second. The subjects were photographed against a grid background to facilitate use by artists and most were taken from three directions simultaneously with banks of cameras. One of the most remarkable achievements in the history of photography, Muybridge made approximately 100,000 images, including both his human and animal motion studies, at the University of Pennsylvania with initial arrangements by Thomas Eakins. The cost of the project, completed in 1887, was more than $50,000. Earlier in his career, Muybridge was a Western landscape photographer operating in California under the name Helios. He was then invited to photograph horses in motion by Leland Stanford and invented a way to project a sequence of these pictures on a screen, now considered the first motion picture using photographic images. Muybridge also was the co-inventor of the electronic shutter, necessary for him to capture motion at high speeds. SOLD

123b. Muybridge, Edweard. River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West by Rebecca Solnit. Viking, 2003. 1st printing, hardcover with dust jacket. 305 pages. Illustrated. In this notable volume, Solnit, a gifted writer, provides a compelling narrative placing Muybridge, who was a leader in Western landscape photography and an innovator in the field of motion pictures, in the context of his times. "Rebecca Solnit is one of the most agile, protean, and consistently (jaw-droppingly) fascinating writers of the current generation; and with this, her latest and finest work, that crusty old shape-shifter Eadweard Muybridge may finally have met his match. . . . she writes like an angel." Lawrence Weschler. "[A] brilliant essay on Muybridge and all he begat....RIVER OF SHADOWS is never less than deeply intelligent, and often very close to inspired....It belongs to that wondrous class of books -- like William Gass's ON BEING BLUE and Anne Carson's EROS THE BITTERSWEET -- in which an extraordinary mind seizes hold of an unexpected topic and renders it with such confidence, subtlety and grace that one finds it hard to remember what things looked like before the book appeared in the world." New York Times Book Review - Jim Lewis (03/30/2003). "Her sweeping narrative situates Muybridge within the history of California as a place of technological innovation and epitome of westward expansion and renvention. Solnit, a highly original voice with an eloquent prose style, has published numerous works focusing on California artists, the American West, and landscape. River of Shadows benefits from her keen understanding of nineteenth- and twentieth-century history and reflects back on the author's other subject interests." Sarah Ziebell Mann, Moving Image, Fall 2004. "[I]t is hard to do justice to Solnit's far-reaching perspective....Her prose, terse and poetic, makes the book a pleasurably dizzying experience." Bookforum - Luc Sante. In the literature of photography, Solnit has made notable contributions to such publications as Aperture, No. 120 and 164; Beyond Wilderness; Nuclear Matters (San Francisco Camerawork, 1991); Points of Entry: Tracing Cultures (Friends of Photography, 1995); and Virginia Beahan & Laura McPhee, No Ordinary Land: Encounters in a Strange Environment (1998).
