Description

    A Mae West Huge Collection of Publicity and Other Photographs, 1930s-1970s. All housed in one box, approximately 500, some original prints, some reprints, with either glossy or matte finishes, mostly black and white but some in color, ranging in date from the star's early days in Hollywood (circa 1932) up until the 1970s when she was still out and about on the town, most are publicity shots of West alone though many show her posing with famous people such as Liberace, Edward G. Robinson, Debbie Reynolds, and Tallulah Bankhead, etc.; many hundreds are reprinted duplicate images that West had made to send to fans; also included are a number of miscellaneous smaller snapshots and West family portraits -- overall, somewhat of a hodgepodge but a fascinating one that spans decades of West's life! Please note our catalogue illustration does not do justice to this lot; included with a signed 'Letter of Provenance' from John West, Mae's nephew.
    Mostly 8" x 10" (though some smaller)
