The volume is too small to do justice properly to all of the beautiful photographs within. Much more a reference guide than a showcase of works, it just does not work in this size. The photographs are gorgeous and the selection is excellent - I only wish this was a huge book where lovers of photography could truly savour each and every photograph.

Awesome massive collection of photos printed to the highest quality on heavy paper. Some beauties I've never seen before.

Early photos more interesting then later ones. This should be in every photographers library. If I was to rate photos early up to 1940's it would have 5 star

A handsome book published in 2000 and based on exhibitions at the Danziger Gallery in New York. I would imagine that editing this sort of photographic overview is a bit of a challenge: many famous names obviously have to be included but should their equally famous photos be repeated yet again or go for something not seen before; just arty photographers or open the concept to include, perhaps, more commercial work like advertising or magazine fashion; only black and white or maybe color should have a look in.

I thought James Danziger's choice was about right. The 228 photos from 159 photographers really do sum up the creative endeavors of ten decades and nicely he took the wide view that wonderful creativity can exist outside the narrow confines of 'art' photography. For example: plate 21 an aerial shot of a living flag made by thousands of troops; plate 73 has the multi-flash golf swing of Bobby Jones taken by Harold Edgerton; plate 143 is a fashion shot by Ormond Gigli of forty-one models each posing in the windows of a disused five story building. Mostly though, page after page of the names and their not quite so well known images, sometimes several. Richard Avedon: five; Walker Evans: six; Joel Meyerowitz: three; Edward Weston: five.

This is a big chunky book which looks and feels the part. Open the cover and another board cover needs to be opened to the right. James Danziger's text only fills six pages (and in big type) then every spread has one photo on the right with a brief caption on the left-hand page. Initially I was rather put off by the huge margins around each photo but as I turned the pages I got to appreciate them more and more and I felt I was looking through a sumptuous art book, which of course I was.

The paper is a substantial matt art and it's worth knowing that all the photos, the majority of which are black and white, are printed in four colors (this tends to give the blacks a really solid richness) with a 200 screen. Some from the first two decades of the century are sepia and in later years color shots are included. The Italian art book printers Amilcare Pizzi did a fine job.

I thought this was a quite remarkable book and a joy to look through. Can't find a copy cheap enough, try Assouline's chunky paperback version, approximately a quarter the size of this hardback but I found it a bit unwieldy because of the thick paper.

If, like me, you enjoy photography books more for the photos than for the accompanying text then you will find American Photographs 1900-2000 a joy. Of the 400 pages that make up this volume, only 6 pages have text. The rest are devoted to a wide and wonderful range of photographs. It is simply and stylishly laid out. Each left had page lists the photographer, the title, the date, size and type of the photograph. On the opposing right-hand page the accompanying photograph is beautifully reproduced. The plates are not 'cramped', as they can be in other books commemorating a century's worth of photography. Photojournalism, fashion photography, scientific photography, 'art' photography and Hollywood glamour photography are all covered. It is a pleasure to own.
The photography contained in this book is masterful! The black and white and color photos capture the essence of a country on the move. The captions help the reader to connect events and people to American history.
