The Joseph M. Cohen Collection
Published by Damiani.
Edited by Ray Merritt. Text by Malcolm Daniel. R. Ward Bissell, Sarah Greenough, Robert C. Morgan, Marvin Heiferman, et al. Afterword by Joseph Cohen.
The reasons why people collect art are no doubt as simple and as complex as the reasons why people fall in love. The New York collector Joe Cohen has been quietly amassing a stupendous art collection for four decades, excluding no medium or subject, for the love of art, and its acquisition. The Cohen Family Collection is vast, but also very personal, often with a tale behind each work. Among the highlights of this collection are paintings by Tiepolo, Degas, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall, Balthus, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, Joan Mitchell and David Hockney, and photographs by Atget, Dorothea Lange, Irving Penn, Avedon, Sugimoto and Chuck Close. Edited by Ray Merritt, this massive celebration of the collection illustrates many of the works in situ, and, through informative and entertaining commentary, casts light on their diversity and significance.

Nineteenth-Century Photographs of Rome and Its Environs
Published by Charta/American Academy in Rome.
Edited by W. Bruce Lundberg, John Pinto. Text by Marina Miraglia, Maria Francesca Bonetti, Allan Ceen, W. Bruce Lundberg. Preface by Sarah Greenough.
By 1860, photography in Rome was undergoing dramatic change. The level of detail made possible by new glass wet plate and albumen techniques encouraged photographers to take a documentary approach, focusing on architectural fragments, transitional spaces like stairways, even citizens going blurrily about their daily business--in short, on everything but the city’s oft-photographed basilicas and ruins. The candid, frequently off-balance images collected in this unique volume, by photographers such as Vincento Carlo, Domenico Baldessare Simelli, Eugène Gustave Chauffourier, A. de Bonis and Edmond Lebel, anticipate both street photography and postmodern photographic abstraction.
These photographers have only recently begun to emerge from obscurity and remain poorly documented. Indeed, many of their images have never been exhibited, and in some cases attribution remains conjectural. By bringing a significant body of work together, this collection sheds new light on their individual artistic personalities and illuminates the contributions of the group to the history of photography.

His Selected Essays and Notes
Published by Aperture.
By Alfred Stieglitz. Edited by Sarah Greenough. Essay by Richard Whelan.
Stieglitz on Photography is a compilation of Alfred Stieglitz's most important essays gathered from a variety of sources and published together for the first time in a single volume. Many of these writings have been unavailable for more than 50 years. In addition to Stieglitz's commentary on the development of fine-art photography, this volume includes notes and photo recipes from experiments with the early photographic processes, including early color photography and platinum and photogravure printing. The book is illustrated with over 75 black-and-white photographs by Stieglitz and his contemporaries, and contains selections of his articles in their original layouts. An eight-page four-color insert features rarely seen and never-before-published hand-tinted Stieglitz images and autochrome experiments.
