One of the most famous images ever taken, photographer Malcolm Browne's photo of Buddhist monk Thích Qu?ng Ð?c lighting himself on fire in protest remains as important today as it was when it was first published over fifty years ago! The offered photo dates from about 1963 making it one of the few examples we have ever handled from the 1960's that is not a wire photograph! A spectacular beauty in fine condition that presents with impressive clarity, this is the finest example we have ever sold before and ranks among the top handful we have ever seen in any form!
