First Edition by Bruce Weber. “O Rio de Janeiro” published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, in 1986. Containing 144 spectacular color and duotone full-page gravures (four folding), the book is an intimate photo-essay that features images of sculpted fashionable young people and the sensual Rio de Janeiro scene. Bruce Weber has produced a formidable list of wonderful photobooks throughout the years but “O Rio de Janeiro” still remains his most popular and sought after book. Writing in ““The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century” Vince Aletti states, “O Rio is most successful as a carefully planned act of seduction…Weber has turned his trademark fiction of youthful exuberance and sexy camaraderie into a fast-paced montage intercut with landscapes, still lifes, news photos and family snapshots.”

Near perfect copy of this classic book. Some spots on front cover, spine has signs of wear due to viewing, but inside pages crisp and clean. Binding firm. Rating of Very Good ( would be excellent other than spots on front cover).
