    PHOTOGRAPHS OF STRIPPERS AND BURLESQUE COMEDIANS..

    Please note: Autographs from the Leonard Finger collection have not been autenticated by Spence/Grad but we believe these autographs to be as stated.

    Group of twenty-seven publicity stills (8 x 10" and larger) of burlesque performers, primarily strippers, from the 1920s onward. Many of the photos are autographed (Tami Bright, Zona La-Mon, China Doll, Joey Faye, "Sunny" by photographer Alfred Cheney Johnson, and Sid Silvers). Of note: RUSS MEYER STILL of girl and dog, Typed Letter Signed, photo, and partial transcript for book by Sherry Britton. Sold with: five risqué paperbacks and tabloids from the 50s and 60s (including a 1957 publication featuring Tina Louise and Weegee’s Greenwich Village), two hard-core girl & horse photos and a booklet from the 1930s detailing the downfall of a Hollywood extra girl (illustrated), and a hard-core "silhouette" novelty booklet "A Pic Nic For Two."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
