New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1922. Hardcover. Very Good +. The 1922 1st --and limited-- edition of this lavish collection of 32 E.O. Hoppe tipped-in portraits of beautful women around the world. #387 of 500 copies issued in its patterned, vellum-backed boards. Solid and VG+, with light rubbing and a bit of light staining along the spine, and minor abrading at the rear hinge. Internally, clean as could be, with no writing or markings of any kind. Tall quarto, each photo merits a preceding caption page, which identifies the subject and her nationality. A lovely collection, each "fair" woman photographed by Hoppe in a rich, appreciative gravure.
