Abbott helped save the work of Atget, whose photography became classic, basic to the history and criticism of photography as Bach is to music. Unfortunately the reproductions are in black and white rather than the warm brown tones that gave the originals some of their essential character, and somewhat too contrast. This book should be considered essential for it's early discussion by Abbott in tandem with the many later fine books and reproductions of Atget's photography.
