gelatin silver print, with credit by Robert Delpire and title in pencil on the reverse, 1949 (Robert Frank: Paris, unpaginated)

This luminous, warm-toned early print is on double-weight paper with a matte surface. It is in generally excellent condition. Upon close inspection, a few scattered deposits of retouching are visible. Age-appropriate silvering is visible in its darkest areas, mostly near the edges. The print is trimmed to the image, and the edges are very slightly curled. There is some minor intermittent edge chipping.
