Synopsis: "To what extent can we love the developing American West? We know the urgency of that question because bitterness has sometimes made us exiles. My first attempt to describe the region in a book (The New West, 1974) omitted pictures that might have helped. I am grateful now to be able to reproduce them. They record a geography that is still in some respects characteristic, one where we could do better but where the rest is faultless.
At about the time I took the pictures I read an interview with Raoul Coutard, Jean-Luc Godard's cameraman. In it Coutard noted with gratitude that 'daylight has an inhuman faculty for always being perfect.' It is one of the mercies, I believe, by which each of us is allowed to live." --Robert Adams, from Commercial/Residential

Book Description PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Special Edition. New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz, 2003. (8 x 9 in., 20.3 x 22.9 cm). First edition. This copy number 26 of the signed and slipcased deluxe edition of 50. Black paper wrapped boards with grey semi-gloss paper wrapped spine and white titles on the front cover (fine save for faint rubbing and a linear rub to the sensitive surface); rubberized black paper dust jacket with embossed title (fine); black paper wrapped slipcase (fine save for extremely minor wear). Brief introduction by Adams followed by 40 plates beautifully printed by Trifolio of Verona, Italy (and with "Special thanks to Sue Medlicott.") "Nearly three decades after the publication of 'The New West', Adams revisited images from that project that did not appear in the 1974 book. Sorted by the two categories denoted in the title of the volume, the pictures are unified by a quality of light that lifts them above those sterile classifications." (Chuang, 'Books by Robert Adams' in 'The Place We Live volume III', np.) Beautifully produced, albeit fragile, hence scarce in such well-preserved condition. Signed by Author(s).
