Greta Garbo, Queen Christina, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
7 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Greta Garbo, Queen Christina

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer publicity shots and stills for the 1933 film "Queen Christina," starring Greta Garbo as the queen and John Gilbert as her Spanish lover. 3 8x10 gelatin silver prints on resin-coated paper and one slightly smaller print of the same nature, two stills from the film and two publicity shots of just Garbo. 3 of the 4 prints are labeled in the negative. The film features Garbo as the 17th-century Swedish queen who abdicated to be with her non-royal lover -- a total Hollywood fabrication, as the real queen reputedly was a lesbian who abdicated after announcing that she had no intention of getting married to provide an heir. Anyway, Garbo's mannish clothing in one of these prints provides a hint of the queen's true nature. Condition of these prints: All images fine except for the throne-room print, which shows a trace of bleed-through from the MGM stamp on the reverse.

NEWMAN, ARNOLD. One Mind's Eye, Boston: David R. Godine, 1974. Oblong quarto, priority unknown to me, pp. xix, 192 photo plates, 12 (appendix, technical data etc.), black cloth with silver lettering stamped on spine and upper board, duotone photos. A thorough treatment of the 20th-century photographer's career, including the famous "Yaacou Agam" collage, and also photos that establish Newman as more than just a brilliant celebrity photographer. Robert Hirsch, in his photo history "Seizing the Light": Newman's favorite procedure was to bring his studio to his subjects, integrating their personalities with their surroundings, thereby affirming the subject's position, occupation and status to an audience unfamiliar with the subject." Condition of this book: Boards slightly bowing forward, jacket has a chip, a short tear and other minor wear. Leaves clean and tight but at this writing smell of humid storage (will likely dissipate with dry storage), images fine.
