Lady Lisa Lyon. Photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe. Foreword by Sam Wagstaff. Essay by Bruce Chatwin. A Studio Book/Viking Press, 1983. 128 pp. Quarto. First edition. SIGNED by Mapplethorpe on half-title page. Hardbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Library protector. Black-and-white reproductions.



SIGNED copy of the desirable hardbound first edition of Robert Mapplethorpe's amazing 1983 monograph on body builder Lisa Lyon. He photographs her in a multitude of different settings, sometimes nude, sometimes in costume. Perhaps his most cogent expression of his affinity with the Classical tradition, Lyon becomes in these pictures a (female!) David to Mapplethorpe's Michelangelo. Included in Roth, The Open Book.
