Nakladem Autora, 1905, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, Edition Unstated. KLOSOWSKI, WALERY. Kobieta i jej wdziecki (Woman and Her Charms), Warsaw: Nakladem Autora, 1905. Quarto, pp. 156, beige cloth boards with gilt lettering and abstract design to front, numerous halftone photos, many tinted, text in Polish. Among a wave of naturist/pictorialist photobooks that were issued around the beginning of the 20th century, this one is in the more explicit German style, as compared with the retouched French efforts. It is a worldwide survey of young women, touching all races, with bits of ethnic costume to signal the subjects' origin. Photo size varies -- three are full-page. This volume is exceeding scarce: OCLC Worldcat locates only one, in the National Library of Poland. Not in Bertolotti's Books of Nudes.
