Strangely enough, this book did not have a copyright year imprinted therein, but some research--as well as a look at styles and makeup--have reaffirmed that the publishing date of this lovely, oversized tome was in 1973. Measuring in at approx. 15" x 10 1/2" it is filled with genuinely beautiful, tasteful nude photography by James Sterling Moran. Some plates are in color and others in black and white. The photos are enhanced by snippets of poetry by the likes of Wordsworth, Christopher Marlowe, and that Shakespeare fellow. The best of all possible worlds!
Still well-bound and in pretty much excellent vintage condition with the exception of some wear to the cover at the lower right-hand corner. (Please see first photo.)
