    More Information:

    Fabulous fashion photography for Harper's Bazaar during the 1950s reproduced with the notes, both typed and handwritten, regarding each shot.   All, but three were published.

     ". the photographs are untouched ( or barely retouched) originals marked with a grease pencil for Brodovitch; the gowns titles and described by Snow; the images numbered, dated, and rubber-stamped with a notice of copyright, and signed by the artist in his acrobatic scrawl..It is pure chance that these prints escaped the garbage pail." (from Thurman's text).
