    Collection of (12) black-and-white original camera negatives of Marilyn Monroe by John Florea. Original camera 2 1/4 in. negatives (12, on five strips) of Marilyn Monroe by John Florea and from his private collection. Two of them (on one strip) include Florea's own studio-stamped matching contact print. This group documents the photographer himself at work, posing and shooting his favorite subject. From a special publicity sitting for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which contributed to a Collier's magazine spread; very fine.
