Immortal Portraits - Being a Gallery of Famous Photographs
The Focal Press, London and New York. 1941, 1st Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 144 pages (complete). A fascinating, amiable collection of photographic portraits from the early days of photography. There are portraits of Samuel Morse (who looks like Disraeli), Balzac (who looks like butcher), John Murray, Sarah Bernhardt (who looks like Stephen Tennant), Mrs Gladstone (who looks like a wife who has yet to discover her husband is addicted to pornography) among many others. The collection is wonderful, the commentary and labels are equally entertaining. The cover has some scuffing and mild wear. The pages are clean, clear, bright, undimmed. fn. Fair/No Jacket.
