Title: PETER VAIL: NUDE BLACK-AND-WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS...
Publisher: Los Angeles, CA: Bruce Of Los Angeles, 1962
Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: None, As Issued
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 1 pages. Published in 1962. Rare Peter Vail and Bruce of Los Angeles collectible set. An original vintage photographic print of Peter Vail, as photographed by Bruce of Los Angeles, just before his death. Peter Vail was one of the very last models to pose for Bruce of LA. The print measures 8 X 10 inches and is encased in two protective sheets: A glassine photographic sleeve which is placed inside an oversize thick plastic cover. It shows Peter Vail at the peak of his beauty: Young, extremely handsome, and sexily (though not overly) buffed, in a full-frontal pose. He is shown with his fully erect penis, facing the camera. This is not a digital print or a later, contemporary print but was printed directly from the original negative during Bruce of LA's lifetime. It is very beautifully developed, with great clarity and subtle contrasts, on Double-Weight Fiber photographic paper, the paper Bruce of LA used in his last years. According to Reed Massengill, the leading authority on male erotic photography in America: "Coupled with the fact that it is unstamped but retains its white borders, it dates back to Bruce's lifetime rather than the later Kensington Road-era". This is the genuine article, an absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Peter Vail, Bruce of LA, and male erotic art photography collectors. This original vintage photographic print is now collectible. It comes with a 5 X 7 contemporary print of Peter Vail in another nude pose by Bruce of Los Angeles. As far as we know, this is the only set available online, is eminently suitable for framing, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A rare set thus. One of the iconic American male-nude models of the 20th century. A fine set. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOE DALLESANDRO AND BRUCE OF LOS ANGELES TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 14030
