First edition of Frank’s scarce, loving photobook on Zero Mostel—reading a book, with 37 whimsical photogravures of the beloved actor.
Robert Frank’s genial photo-essay on Zero Mostel contains 37 photogravures of the man loved and praised worldwide as “the actor’s actor, the critic’s actor and, perhaps most important, the theatergoer’s actor” (New York Times). Without scarce glassine, rarely found.
Images fine, lightest soiling, faint toning at edges of scarce, about-fine book.
