THE FRENCHMAN, A PHOTOGRAPHIC INTERVIEW. 1949. HAND-DEDICATED BY HALSMAN.

£50.00

London: Simon & Schuster, 1949

23.5 x 17.5cm, 96 pp plus wrappers. First edition of this humorous photographic “interview”  by Halsman with the, then, popular French comic – the interview consists of 24 questions followed by 24 full-page images of Fernandel miming his exaggerated responses. This copy has a neat signed and dated dedication by Halsman to Fred Knoop (and also bears the Knoop family Ex Libris plate). Lots of rubbing to cover and some paper loss on the bottom right corner over the last few pages and wear and marking to wrappers. Priced thus.
