There are few surprises among the photographs selected for this collection; from Edwin Hale Lincoln's Thistle and Walker Evans's Brooklyn Bridge to Richard Avedon's Brigitte Bardot, students of photography will recognize all but a few. But the collection's special appeal, in addition to the two fine essays, is as a survey of the medium from Lincoln to Diane Arbus. The book is organized chronologically but indulges in intersting juxtapositions; Edward Weston's undulating Pepper No. 30 is contrasted with Imogen Cunningham's contorted Nude; Nickolas Murry's plaintive Babe Ruth with Edward Steichen's veiled, furtive Gloria Swanson.
