"The legendary schooner fishing days are gone forever from the coast of Nova Scotia, but the spirit of those days lives on in the stories and photographs of 'A Portrait of Lunenburg County". Stripped of romantic myths, told without editorial comment in the stark and simple words of the fishermen themselves, these are the tales of harsh conditions and sometimes cruel captains, of hard work for low wages, and of tragedy and daring amid the awesome forces of the elements. Here, too, are plain, straightforward expressions of human values nurtured in tightly knit communities: honesty, kindness, respect, and willingness to share. First published in 1978, this new edition of 'A Portrait of Lunenburg County' is a moving tribute to the warmth, humour, and vitality of a people whose lives have formed a rich chapter in Canada's post." -from the front flap.

Beacon Paperback #351. "Here are the Black Panthers, shown in a moving collection of photographs by Ruth-Marion Baruch and her husband, Pirkle Jones: stoics in dashikis; a youth in a black leather jacket, tenderly spooning cereal into a child's mouth; faces that show dreams, purpose, rebellion. These pictures, originally gathered for an exhibit at San Francisco's De Young Museum, comprised what was perhaps the most controversial show in the museum's history -- and was certainly one of the most popular. Since the San Francisco exhibit, the photographs have been shown at The Studio Museum in Harlem, and at Dartmouth College. These varied, candid shots portray the Panthers in their political and personal lives. On the faces of these young men and women are reflected the violence and the hope of America. With an excellent historical interpretation of the Panthers by black journalist William Worthy, 'The Vanguard' is a document of our times." - from the rear cover.

Illustrated in Black-and-White. Index. 8vo, black paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "In an 1828 letter to his partner, Nicéphore Niépce, Louis Daguerre wrote, "Iam burning with desire to see your experiments from nature." In this book, Geoffrey Batchen analyzes the desire to photograph as it emerged within th e philosophical and scientific milieus that preceded the actual invention of photography. Recent accounts of photography's identity tend to divide between the postmodern view that all identity is determined by context and a formalist effort to define the fundamental characteristics of photography asa medium. Batchen critiques both approaches by way of a detailed discussio n of photography's conception in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He examines the output of the various nominees for "first photographer," then incorporates this information into a mode of historical criticism informed by the work of Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida. The resultis a way of thinking about photography that persuasively accords with the mediums undeniable conceptual, political, and historical complexity." (fromthe dj). Contents : Preface.. 1.
