From 1948 to 1976 Ansel Adams produced seven portfolios, each a limited edition of from ten to sixteen original photographic prints. Ownership of all seven portfolios is confined to a handful of institutions and individuals. This book contains the full ninety superb images, reproduced in brilliant double-impression photolithography closely supervised by Mr. Adams. Introduced with an eloquent essay by John Szarkowski, The Portfolios of Ansel Adams also cotains text from the original portfolios, including a memorable essay by Beaumont and Nancy Newhall in Portfolio VI.
