NY: Abrams, . Illustrated. First Edition, first printing. Signed presentation from Steinmetz on the half-title page: " For Claudia with warmest regards, George Steinmetz." Photographer Steinmetz also shot pictures using a motorized paraglider, creating an unparalleled portrait of Rub' al-Khali, or "the Empty Quarter"- most likely the hottest sand desert in the world. Although only a fraction of the size of its giant neighbor, the Sahara, the Empty Quarter's punishing terrain has rarely been captured on film, especially from this perspective. Oblong quarto: pictorial boards in dust jacket; 207 pages. Item #57847
Near fine copy in a lovely d/j.
