Milan. Electa Editrice Portfolios. 1981. No. 422 of a limited edition of 1,000 copies. 4 text pages, 12 loose heliogravure prints by Blumenfeld, with tissue guard-leaves. Housed in black card portfolio with title paste-down on front cover, with white card slip cover. 410 x 310mm (16 x 12"). 0.8kg. Italian. Very good; portfolio and plates lightly bumped on lower corners (not affecting the inner margins or images), lacking one tissue-guard, slip cover has some surface markings but has preserved the portfolio well.

A scarce portfolio of heliogravure prints reproducing some of Erwin Blumenfeld's most iconic photographs, including his image of Lisa Fonssagrives posing on the Eiffel Tower in Lelong (1939).
