This is a signed limited edition artist's edition of published by Taschen, Germany in 2011 that had a limitation of 250 signed and numbered copies that includes an original signed print Bert Stern with this being number 240. This is not to be confused with the more common collector's edition that although signed does not contain the original signed print. From the publisher, "Taschen has paired Mailer's original text (his 1973 biography Marilyn) with Bert Stern's extraordinary photographs - widely considered the most intimate ever taken of Monroe - to create a fitting tribute to the woman who, at the time of her death in 1962, was the world's most famous woman, a symbol of glamour and eroticism for an entire generation. This book, conceived by Lawrence Schiller, Mailer's collaborator on five works, combines the author's masterful text with Stern's penetrating images of the 36-year-old Marilyn. Photographed for Vogue magazine over three days at the Bel-Air Hotel, Marilyn had never allowed such unfettered access, nor had she looked so breathtakingly beautiful. Six weeks later, mysteriously, she was dead. In this bold synthesis of literary classic and legendary portrait sitting, Mailer and Stern lift the veils of confusion surrounding Monroe - the woman, the star, the sex symbol - and offer profound insight into an iconic figure whose true personality remains an enigma even today. Limited to a total of 1,962 numbered copies signed by Bert Stern, this book was available as a Collector's Edition (No. 251-1,962), and also in two Art Editions of 125 copies each (No. 1-250). This Art Edition of 125 numbered copies (No. 125-250), each signed by Bert Stern, comes with the pigment print on archival paper Contact Sheet, 1962, also signed by the photographer Stern. The book measures 17.5 x 14.5 inches and is a hardcover housed in a clamshell box which also contains the signed print which measures 16 x 12 inches. The condition of the book, print, and clamshell box is MINT and is still contained in the original publishers shipping carton. Bookseller Inventory #
