Signed by Yousuf Karsh without inscription on front endpaper. First portion of pages loose from binding, probably due to the special binding of this book, which according to a laid in page is a special thermoplastic binding... used instead of sewing... It is also possible to remove, if desired, individual portraits for mounting and framing without destroying the other contents. This insert provides suggestions for restoration should loose pages occur -- we have left this decision to the final owner. 2 inch chip from front jacket panel, jacket lightly rubbed and toned. 1960 Large Hardcover. 204, [4] pp. A portfolio of reproductions from photographic portraits of famous individuals, by perhaps the greatest portrait photographer of our time. Each photograph is paired with a brief biographical sketch, and Karsh provides an introduction.
