Edition Not Stated-Presumed First. Elephant Folio. Stapled Pictorial Wrappers. Publisher's Prospectus. Very Good. np (16pp), 11 color and 7 b&w illustrations. Text in English. One of the most lavish books published to date on the work of a single photographer, Benedikt Taschen's massive, already out of print 2006 tome on Peter Beard rivals Helmut Newton's "Sumo" in both scale and grandeur.
