1 Peebles, Melvin Van The Big Heart
Fearon 1957 First American Edition. Cloth Near Fine Plus Very Good Plus Cloth 8vo - over 7 
No edition stated on the copyright page. Assumed first printing. Photography by Ruth Bernhard. The book is ever so lightly cocked, and 4 pages have a small spot half the size of a pencil eraser at the bottom of the pages, else basically as new. A beautiful copy of the book, which is a photographic essay on life in San Francisco, focusing on the cable cars. Not remaindered, not ex library. Dustjacket is Very Good Plus or Near Fine Minus, with some very, very light chipping in a small area, and being price clipped at the bottom of the front flap. No significant rips or tears whatsoever, just the slightest bit of spotting. NF++/VG+. While Bernhard was the photographer, Peebles wrote the text of this book and it was his first published work. It is a very uncommon book, and a great piece of nostalgia linked to one of the most famous independent film makers ever. He is credited as Melvin Van, and is also featured in three of the photographs, all of which are black and white.
