    [Rod McKuen]. Ralph Crane, photographer. LIFE Magazine Photo Binder. 1967. "From the Editors and Photographers of LIFE". Twenty-three vintage black and white, double weight, glossy photos of Rod McKuen as taken by photographer Ralph Crane for LIFE magazine's February 9th, 1968 article "What? A Best-Selling Poet?". Only a few of these photos were used. Housed in the protective sleeves of a red LIFE binder, each photo is lightly trimmed and measures approximately 10 x 13 inches. Light edge wear, small corner bumps and bends, light curling, minor stains and emulsion damage. On versos: Dated "12-15-67" ink credit stamps of LIFE magazine and photographer Ralph Crane. Included is one 11 x 14 inch black and white, single weight, glossy portrait photo of a smiling and bearded Rod McKuen with additional surface creases and edge tears. Very good.
