Item Description: Itamarati Grafica e Editora, (Ipirangia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 1991. Hardcover. First edition. Small oblong quarto. Very brief text in Portuguese. Twenty-four photographic images. Fine in just about fine dustwrapper with a small smudge on the rear panel. An exceptionally rare book of nude photography of adolescent Brazilian girls, published to accompany an exhibition of photographs in Sao Paulo. The devoutly Roman Catholic Brazilian government authorities seized and then destroyed 236 copies of the 500 copy run of this title just a week after its publication. Police raided Cabral's studio, gallery, and printer, and confiscated his negatives and existing prints of the photographs. After two years and legal vindication, Cabral received his negatives back, although in varying degrees of damage.The American edition, titled *Anjos Proibidos: Forbidden Angels*, and published by Ophelia Editions in 2000, with 27 additional photographs was again suppressed when one of the models, now grown to adulthood, sued for invasion of privacy. Despite the publisher's eventual victory in the lawsuit, the book was still effectively suppressed, and when it now appears on the secondary market, it invariably commands four figures.[WITH] publisher's maquette and proofs for the American edition, as follows: 1. a full set of printer's "blue" proofs for the photos, text, and dustwrapper on blue proofing paper; 2. a full set of same on glossy paper; and 3. a full set of the folded and gathered sheets on glossy paper, laid into a proof of the dustwrapper.A rare book, with unique accompanying material. Provenance on request. *OCLC* locates two copies of the American edition, and no copies of the Brazilian edition. Bookseller Inventory # 99192
