      Estimate $6,000 - 9,000

      Premiere Nudes, unpaginated.

      Allen's most desirable portfolio, complete with 15 original photographs.
      It is accompanied by the bound volume featuring descriptions of each of the models and his eccentric observations: "These seven models have reached an age of maturity practically immune from disease, ailments or malformations. They all stand far above the average; mentally, physically and morally. All true types of the characteristic red-blooded American semi-athletic girl."
