With an afterword by Doris Arbus.
First edition, first printing. This copy is the first printing with the plate titled “Two Girls in Identical Raincoats, Central Park, N.Y.C, 1969” which was suppressed in subsequent printings. A posthumous retrospective of 80 Arbus’ images; the photographer committed suicide in 1971.
Quarto. Original white boards, photographic illustration to upper board, titles to spine in black. With the photographic dust jacket. Lavishly illustrated throughout. Spine bumped but an excellent copy in fine dust jacket.
