It is hard to give any monograph of Bourdin's photos less than 5 stars, because, at least in terms of what I've encountered they're all printed JUST FINE. The introductory essay in here is nice because it provides some autobiographical background, which I haven't found as much of in any of the other colelctions.
There are two editions of this book that content wise the same. Big difference is size. One is a small chap book size the other is a slightly larger about 8 1/2 square. Both are great. really nice reproductions and a good introduction to his work.
