[no significant wear to book, just a touch of foxing to top of text block; jacket has tiny tear at top front hinge, another even smaller closed tear at bottom right corner of front panel]. (B&W photographs) "This vivid pictorial study of the work of Russia's foremost film director contains 250 stills from Eisenstein's ten great films, selected from the Avant-Scène Cinéma archives with the collaboration of the S.M. Eisenstein Memorial Centre in Moscow. The beautifully reproduced plates are mostly frame enlargements which, to preserve their authenticity as 'action' pictures, have not been retouched. The informed commentary on each film is by Abraham Segal, who is a regular contributor to several French film journals [and] is in charge of the Avant-Scène Cinéma archives and is himself a film director. One of the most valuable features of the book is the inclusion of a previously unpublished essay by Eisenstein himself, which throws new light on the inspiration behind his technique." (The title of the essay is "The Close-up.") Originally published in French; includes filmography, biography and bibliography.
