    A fine collection of pre-1900 French nude photography.

A stunning short collection of reproductions of French cabinet card nudes, displaying girls and women who pose erotically, coyly and quaintly.

    Offsetting from wrappers to first and last page. Minor warping to middle of fore-edge of first few pages. Very Good Condition.
