    Albert Morse Underground Artist Photo Print Group (c. 1970s). In addition to his "day job" as legal council to the Bay Area's best Underground Comix artists, Albert Morse was also a skilled photographer. In fact, Albert began taking photos at the age of twelve, after receiving a Voitlander Superb camera from his father. A self-taught photographer, Albert spent years perfecting his craft, eventually publishing several books of his work. This remarkable collection of 26 black and white 8" x 10" prints, many of which were published in Morse's Funnies, includes stunning portraits of Robert Crumb, Robert's first wife Dana, his current wife, Aline, Larry Todd, Dave Sheridan, Guy Colwell, Dan O'Neill, Ken Barteleme, Barney Steel, Bobby London, Jay Lynch, Spain Rodriguez, Justin Green, Patricia Moodian, Willie Murphy, Gary Hallgren, Art Spiegelman, Trina Robins, Bill Griffith, Kim Deitch, Simon Deitch, and Larry Welz. There are several shots of Crumb, including a duplicate of one. In addition to the cartoonist portraits, there is a group of six photos of San Francisco publisher Gary Arlington, including several of Gary in his San Francisco comic book store. All photos are signed by Morse, using his "ALM" initials, and are all in Excellent condition. From the Albert L. Morse Collection.
