      ALLEN, ALBERT ARTHUR (1886-1962)
      Portfolio entitled "The Model, Series No. 1," with 15 photographs of elegantly-posed nude women. Silver prints, each 6 1/2x9 1/2 inches (16.5x24 cm.). 4to, printed wrappers; contents loose as issued; presented in a custom made folding jacket and slipcase. 1925
      Estimate $4,000-6,000

      Allen's most desirable portfolio, which is accompanied by his descriptions of the models and 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."
      Premiere Nudes, unpaginated.
