Yes, a very good resource, especially since so cheap. I bought an extra to (gasp) cut one up with a razor to scan for Powerpoints in my alt class. There is no way to photograph or scan such a tight, small book with so many pages, and the works are so beautiful to show on the screen, especially when talking about that generation of work, Pictorialsim moving into Modernism.
Weston Naef's Collection of Alfred Stieglitz is a great resource, too, although pix BW. It is right now $4 at abebooks.com...very thick, large book.
Abebooks.com has been a huge boon for me. Just ordered the bromoil book that Ed Buffaloe talks about in his bromoil article on Unblinkingeye.com. Speaking of bromoil, there was a new book last year that is pretty darn good, too--Derek Watkins Bromoil A Foundation Course.
I've got to start divesting myself of books...luckily I have a wonderful new library here that loves donations.
