Now regarded as a modern photography classic, this is a true first edition Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original, which is now extremely scarce. An elegant production by Joseph Bourke Del Valle. Brown linen cloth boards with gilt titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by E. J. Bellocq. Preface by Lee Friedlander. Interviews by John Szarkowski. Reproduced from prints made by Lee Friedlander and printed on thick coated stock paper by The Meridien Gravure Company in Connecticut.
 
Taken around 1912, the photographs constitute the only surviving work of the photographer whose work is now considered among the most intriguingly and beguilingly erotic female nude photographs ever made. All of the subjects who posed for E. J. Bellocq were prostitutes and the combination of uninhibited sensuality and sweet candor makes these portraits unique in the history of photography. Includes transcription of a discussion between photographers Lee Friedlander, Dan Leyrer, Joe Sanarens, writer Al Rose, musicians Bill Russell and Johnny Wiggs and Adele, model for several Bellocq portraits. Brown cloth with reddish bw illustrated dustjacket.
