(AP) -  A rare portfolio of photographs from Marilyn Monroe’s last
sitting is up for grabs to the highest bidder.

Freeman’s auction house in Philadelphia estimates the limited-
edition portfolio of 10 photos, made from fashion photographer
Bert Stern’s original negatives from his June 1962 assignment
for Vogue, could fetch $10,000 to $15,000 when it goes on the
block Sept. 10.

The photos will be on view to the public starting Sept. 6, said
Aimee Pflieger, head of the century-old auction house’s photo
division.

Stern, who died in June at age 83, took more than 2,500 photos
of the Hollywood icon over three days at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los
Angeles. The 20-by-20-inch portfolio photos are from the first day.
