MAN RAY

MAN RAY PHOTOGRAPHS 1920-1934 PARIS

James Thrall Soby: Hartford, Connecticut and Random House: NY nd (1934?) 12.5 x 9.5", plain red buckram w/original wraps cover bound in, contents worn, soiled, hinges loose. "With a portrait by Picasso, texts by Andre Breton, Paul Eluard, Rrose Selavy, Tristan Tzara". "Second Edition" WITH A CLICHÉ-VERRE SILVER PRINT BOOKPLATE "1948 GREETINGS FROM JULIET AND MAN RAY", INSCRIBED "TO GEORGE HODEL" AND SIGNED BY MAN RAY, ADDING 1949. Now for the good part. George Hodel was a Hollywood, CA physician who, in a book written by his son, Steve, was accused of being the "Black Dahlia" murderer. According to Steve, the awkward pose of the body (of actress and call girl Elizabeth Short) was in imitation of the pose of the model in Man Ray's photograph "The Minotaur", though critics of the theory state that it was unlikely Dr. Hodel was familiar with the photograph. While the photo is not in this book, this is proof that Dr. Hodel was familiar with Man Ray and his work! The mystery thickens!!! A one-of-a-kind piece.
