Remains a tightly bound copy. Title paged signed by the editor, Stephen Petersen. "This catalogue for an exhibition held at the University of Delaware draws on the extensive collection of her photographs and papers at the university, bringing together a range of specialists to re-examine her work as a whole for the first time in two decades. In the essays, her work is explored in relation to the artistic and commercial trends in photography in the early 20th century; her printing techniques are analyzed using the newest techniques of photographic conservation; and her career is situated in relation to the modern trans-Atlantic figure of the New Woman. The catalogue features many previously unpublished photographs, as well as newly published texts by Käsebier drawn from the Special Collections holdings of the University of Delaware Library. This book offers a long overdue contribution to the study of this important photographer viewed within her cultural context. Includes 95 images of Kasebier's work."--WorldCat.
