You're bidding on a lot with four books by Robert Mapplethorpe, all new in seal.

Mapplethorpe was an American photographer known for his black-and-white portraits and for documenting New York’s S&M scene. He was concerned with Classical aspects of beauty, whether in his nudes, floral still lifes, or self-portraits—light, shadow, composition, and form were central to all his work. “I don't think that there's that much difference between a photograph of a fist up someone's ass and a photograph of carnations in a bowl,” the artist said.
