    More Information:

    Josef Sudek (March 17, 1896-September 15 1976) was a noted Czech photographer best remembered for his haunting night views of Prague and his modernist work, including remarkable still-life images. His work is the more remarkable in that his right arm had been amputated as a result of a WW I war injury. Signed work by Sudek is rare. In particular, this portfolio was signed within a month of his death.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
