Book of Fair Women: photographs by E.O. Hoppé, 1910-21

The Book of Fair Women was published in a limited edition of 560 numbered copies, first in Britain and then in America and Germany. The book contained thirty-two photogravure plates of Hoppé’s portraits of beautiful women from around the world. The German edition had four additional plates, taken by the daughter of Hoppé’s friend and mentor, the leading German portraitist Rudolf Dührkoop, Minya Diez-Dührkoop.
