Set of forty-eight (48) 16” x 20” chromogenic and gelatin silver prints Oak box #20 of 25, 16” x 20” Playmate images with accompanied historical Playboy material, set in a pull drawer, with Playboy logo key #20. Condition: Excellent, conservation condition, with rare oak box, 48 prints and accompanying material This is a limited edition, numbered, oak boxed edition, set of forty-eight (48) 16” x 20” chromogenic and gelatin silver prints, shot by famous Playboy and international photographers, including: Tom Kelly, Bert Stern, Guido Argentini, David La Chappelle and Sante D’Orazio, among others and captures the history of a time gone by. These iconic images feature Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Pamela Anderson, Ursula Andress, and Stephanie Seymour, among many other Playboy entertainer and model icons. Hugh Hefner rarely signed any photographs. He did so for the Playboy Legacy Collection - Gold Edition, signing only one image per set of Playboys first centerfold Playmate, Marilyn Monroe, who appeared as the “Playmate” centerfold in the first issue (1953) of Playboy Magazine. He signed either a black and white photo of Marilyn Monroe, shot in 1946 by Earl Moran and featured as the first centerfold in the magazines debut or a color image of Marilyn Monroe shot in 1953 by Tom Kelly. This set has the 1946 black and white shot by Earl Moran. Each of these 48 museum quality prints were carefully selected and approved by late Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and International Images founder, Norman Solomon. They were selected for The Playboy Legacy Collection, for their iconic beauty and timeless history and produced by International Images in 2007. Each print is blind stamped in the lower right margin. Twenty-Five of these sets were set in a stunning natural wood oak box. The remaining 50 sets (a total of 75 sets) did not come with a custom made and numbered oak box. Each oak box had the Playboy Bunny logo in metal, embedded on the top and also an embedded key hole on the front side, with each key numbered. The box has a drawer (see photos) to contain the following: Includes: • Oak Box with inserted Playboy logo & etched Hugh Hefner signature; • Playboy Club facsimile key #20 to open box. • 16”x20” Black & White Marilyn Monroe Photograph by Earl Moran and signed by Hugh Hefner. • 48 (16” x 20”) chromogenic and gelatin silver prints from Playboy Legacy Collection, published in 2007 by Playboy Enterprises International, Chicago. • Certificate of Authenticity; • “Mutual Seduction”: Large hardcover book with dust jacket.
