New York: Random House, 1992. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. 382 pages. Massive monograph with an essay by Arthur C. Danto. A wide ranging collection that includes some of Mapplethorpe's luminous images of flowers, portraits, and male and female nudes as well as some of his early images of his longtime muse Patti Smith. A tight very near fine copy in a very near fine dust jacket and in a very near slipcase. Still, one of the best books on this important and controversial photographer.
