Harlem as Seen by Hirschfeld

New York: The Hyperion Press, 1941. Tall folio. Limited Edition, one of 1000 numbered copies (this being No. 498). SIGNED and dated 4/16/92 on the half-title by Al Hirschfeld, accompanied by a small self-portrait.

Considered by many to be noted caricuraturist and longtime Harlem resident Hirschfeld's greatest work, a collection of 24 vibrant color lithographs capturing the street life and jazz scene of Harlem.

About Near Fine, with no dust jacket as issued, lacking the rare slipcase. Faint soil on the board edges, with occasional spots of foxing on the pages and light glue darkening on the lithograph edges as is almost always found. An unusually well-preserved copy.
