Diane Arbus: Hubert's Museum Work 1958-1963 (April 8th, 2008--New York--Photographs)

New York: Phillips de Pury & Company, 2008. Pictorial wrappers. The infamous catalogue of the April 8th, 2008 auction at Phillips which, in the 11th hour, was cancelled over disputes over ownership of the material. Clean and Near Fine in its dark, pictorial wrappers. Tall quarto, features 28 separate lots, each with bibliographically interesting descriptions and startlingly high estimates to boot. Such was the intrigue behind these early Diane Arbus photographs that the original discovery of them --and the battle that ensued-- inspired a very fine book from Massachusetts bookseller and writer Greg Gibson called "Hubert's Freaks". (Also includes the original Phillips bidder's form). Near Fine. Item #19428

Price: $100.00
