(ART OF THIS CENTURY). Guggenheim, Peggy, Andre Breton, Jean Arp & Piet Mondrian. ART OF THIS CENTURY: OBJECTS - DRAWINGS - PHOTOGRAPHS - PAINTINGS - SCULPTURE - COLLAGE 1910 TO 1942 - AN EXTRAORDINARY ASSOCIATION COPY. Signed Association Copy from the Author. New York: Art of This Century & Art Aid Corporation, 1942. First Edition 1/2500. 4to. Decorated Cloth Over Boards. Exhibition Catalog. Near Fine./No Jacket - As Issued. 160pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Cover design by Max Ernst. Art of this Century was heiress and prolific contemporary art collector Peggy Guggenheim's now legendary forward-thinking New York gallery that operated from 1942 until 1947. In conjunction with its first exhibition, Guggenheim edited and published this prescient hardbound book also titled "Art of this Century" that featured a cover by her then-husband Max Ernst, original texts by Andre Breton, Jean Arp and Piet Mondrian, and works by the leading proponents of the Russian Avant-Garde, Cubism, Futurism Dada, De Stijl, Surrealism, Dynaton, and Abstraction. The artists allotted one or more reproductions - frequently with their own statements - are Constantin Brancusi, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Giorgio De Chirico, Piet Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Georges Braque, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Leger, Juan Gris, Alexander Archipenko, Albert Gleizes, Louis Marcoussis, Henri Laurens, Jacques Lipchitz, Jacques Villon, Amedee Ozenfant, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, Kasimir Malevich, El Lissitzky, Theo Van Doesburg, Georges Vantongerloo, Antoine Pevsner, Naum Gabo, Cesar Domela-Nieuwenhuis, Ben Nicholson, Vordemberge-Gildewart, Jean Helion, Alexander Calder, John Ferren, John Tunnard, Charles Howard, Jean (Hans) Arp, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, Andre Masson, Joan Miro, Yves Tanguy, Rene Magritte. Andre Breton, Alberto Giacometti, Salvador Dali, Lawrence Vail, Henry Moore, Victor Brauner, Wolfgang Paalen, Oscar Dominguez, Leonor Fini, Paul Delvaux, Leonora Carrington, Roberto Sebastian Matta Echaurren, and Morris Hirschfield. A bright yellow, remarkably well-preserved copy of this uncommon document bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "To mrs Kate Steinitz with many thanks / Peggy Guggenheim / aug. 6. 1942" in black fountain pen on the half title page in the year of publication showing some light soiling and age-toning, mild fraying to the spine ends, and a few ghosts from removed adhesive labels on the inside covers. The front pastedown features the embossed ownership label of the noted late Los Angeles-based artist, educator, and Surrealist collector Emerson Woelffer. Steinitz was a Hanover-based artist and journalist during the twenties who became Kurt Schwitters' close friend, collaborator, publisher, and eventually his biographer. She was a serious collector of his art who later acted as Schwitters' agent both before and after his death. In 1935 she emigrated to New York, where she curated the "New Americans" exhibition at the 1939 World's Fair. Kate Steinitz is credited in the acknowledgements of "Art of This Century" with supplying some of its reproduced photographs, and is also likely the source of the three exhibited Schwitters works cited in the book. She moved to Los Angeles in 1945 to oversee the Elmer Belt library of Vinciana, which she did until her death in 1975. Her personal library was then acquired by noted local antiquarian dealer Jake Zeitlin, who supplied many rare books and prints to Mr. Woelffer - from whose library we obtained this significant tome directly.

(CAGE, JOHN). Cage, John. Russell Ferguson, Editor.. ROLYWHOLYOVER A CIRCUS: JOHN CAGE. New York & Los Angeles: Rizzoli International Publications & Museum of Contemporary Art, 1993. First Edition. Oblong 4to. Silkscreened Aluminum Box. Music Monograph. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. np, loose printed contents laid into an Aluminum Box. Designed by Catherine Lorenz. This is the spirited exhibition catalogue for a huge traveling retrospective that celebrated John Cage, his collaborators, influences, and influence on twentieth Century culture. Composer, lecturer, musician, artist, theoretician, Zen student, mycologist - all aspects of his life and art are represented here in a patchwork quilt of texts and images jammed into a sleek, mirror-like metal case. Every day in each of the show's venues (MOCA, the Menil Collection, the Guggenheim, Art Tower Mito Contemporary Art Center in Japan, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art) the art objects shifted in placement and installation - a nod to Cage's pioneering use of chance, and randomization as compositional elements. This catalogue/object functions much the same way, with nearly fifty pieces of printed ephemera laid in, with no hierarchical order. The primary texts here include; "Paying Attention" by Anne d'Harnoncourt, "nothingtoseeness" by Julie Lazar, "John Cage in the Social Realm" by Laura Kuhn, "UNCAGEDWORDS" by Joan Retallack, "Cage and Counting" by Mark Swed, "Anarchy" by John Cage, "An Autobiographical Statement" by John Cage, "Macrobiotic Cooking" by John Cage, "The Agenbite of Outwit" by Marshall McLuhan, "What Should I Eat?" by Andrew Weil, M. D., "Chronological Table of John Cage's Life" by Ellsworth Snyder, "Zen and Dhyana" by Daisetz T. Suzuki, "The Dancer and the Dance" by Merce Cunningham in conversation with Jacqueline Lesschaeve, and "The Director's Forward" by Richard T. Koshalek of MOCA. Artists' work in the show (but not necessarily in the catalogue) included Cage, Josef Albers, Antonin Arthaud, Joseph Beuys, George Brecht, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Cornell, Willem De Kooning, Maya Deren, Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, Buckminster Fuller, Allen Ginsberg, Arshile Gorky, Peter Greenaway, Richard Hamilton, Jasper Johns, Allan Kaprow, Ellsworth Kelly, Yves Klein, Franz Kline, Sol LeWitt, Kasimir Malevich, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Isamu Noguchi, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Harry Partch, Robert Rauschenberg, Man Ray, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, Robert Ryman, Erik Satie, Jean Tinguely, David Tudor, Cy Twombly, Edgar Varese, La Monte Young, and many, many others.

(CORNELL, JOSEPH). Polko, Elise & Joseph Cornell. MARIA - ONE OF AN ESTIMATED ONE HUNDRED COPIES PRIVATELY PUBLISHED BY JOSEPH CORNELL. NP. (Queens, NY).: Salamander Editions, 1954. First Edition. 12mo. Printed Wrappers with Glassine. Artist's Book. Fine./Fine.. np (12pp), 1 b&w illustration. This tiny gem of a pamphlet was self-published by Cornell in 1954 and distributed only sparingly. Quoting from Deborah Solomon's insightful biography, "Utopia Parkway: The Life and Work of Joseph Cornell" - "As he had once designed special issues of Dance Index, he now published two pamphlets devoted to two great divas. "Maria" (1954) was dedicated to Maria Malibran. And "Bel Canto Pet", done the next year, was his tribute to Giulia Grisi. Cornell printed the pamphlets at his own expense, in editions of 100, and sent them to his friends. While Cornell was a well-known balletomane, virtually nothing has been written about his interest in opera. Many of his bird boxes bear opera-related titles, and comments in his diary suggest that Cornell associated birds with stars from Opera's "golden age". Cornell's pamphlet "Maria" was almost as cryptic as his bird boxes. It doesn't even give the singer's last name. All text, no pictures, it consists of an excerpt from the German author Elise Polko and relates the story of an unnamed diva who becomes enraptured with a nightingale's song". While some of the copies given as gifts by Cornell contained hand-collaged elements or greetings from the artist, this is an exceptionally bright, flawless (save for some slight oxidation of the two staples) example in a glassine wrapper of this rarity, just as Cornell would have received it from the printer.

Signed Presentation Copy from the Author. Paris: au Sans Pariel, 1921. First Edition 1/600. 8vo. Printed Wrappers. Poetry Monograph. Very Good. 78pp, no illustrations. Text in French. "Les Nécessités de la Vie et Les Conséquences des Rêves" is Paul Eluard's 1921 collection of proto-surrealist poems and prose - one of the French literary titan's earliest publications.

Hailing from a privileged cultural background, Paul Morand was a prolific writer well-known by Picasso and the Dada and Surrealist Circles in Paris between the wars. He is probably currently best remembered for having collaborated with Coco Chanel on her memoirs - as his views on race, anti-Semitism, and complicity with the Nazis during the Vichy occupation have left his literary reputation rather tarnished.

(HUGNET, GEORGES) (DUCHAMP, MARCEL). Hugnet, Georges. GEORGES HUGNET: LA SEPTIEME FACE DU DÉ: POEMES - DECOUPAGES (COUVERTURE DE MARCEL DUCHAMP). Paris: Editions Jeanne Bucher, 1936. First Edition 1/250. 4to. Sewn Illustrated Wrappers. Livre D'Artiste. Good +./No Jacket - As Issued.. (84pp), profusely illustrated in small woodcuts along with 15 color and 5 full page monochrome collotype plates + b&w cover. Cover designed by Marcel Duchamp. Text in French. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "La Septieme Face du Dé" is repeatedly acknowledged as one of the triumphs of the Surrealist illustrated book. It masterfully combines twenty of Hugnet's prose poems alongside overtly erotic, beautifully collaged and photomontaged images. The cover design and typography by Marcel Duchamp was created especially for the publication featuring a Man Ray photograph of the sculpture "Why Not Sneeze Rrose Selavy". This example (number forty-four of the two hundred and fifty copies on vélin) shows soiling, patination, and wear to the wrappers - most notably a tiny chip missing from the front cover at the crown of the spine and diagonal soft-creases through each of its foredge corners. The top and bottom edges of the wrappers show some wear and abrading, and the rear cover is slightly sunned along its extremities. The contents and textblock are intact and sound, and for the most part quite bright though showing a bit of foxing to the inside front cover, pastedown, and the first few pages along the foredge. The edges display typical mild age patination and soiling, and there is in addition a tiny diagonal soft-crease to a portion of the textblock at the upper foredge corner. Still in all, this is a most presentable copy of this exquisite tome (cited on pages 92-93 of "The Book of 101 Books") that has been housed in a modest protective custom cloth chemise slipcase. It has been priced accordingly.

(MAN RAY). Man Ray. MAN RAY: HAND WRITTEN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE 1941 EXHIBITION OF "IMAGINARY PORTRAIT OF A FRENCHMAN OF THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY" AT THE ARTIST'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIO. Hollywood, CA. ND (1940).: Self-Published, First Edition. 12mo. Cardstock Postcard. Exhibition Announcement. Very Good. One 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" cardstock sheet printed by hand recto only, no illustrations. This is an announcement designed and printed by hand by Man Ray that was sent to friends and prospective collectors inviting them to a short-lived private viewing held at his Hollywood studio in January of 1941. On display was Man Ray's newly revised version of his 1938 masterwork "Portrait Imaginaire de D.A.F. de Sade" - the original having been left behind when the artist hastily fled Paris following the German occupation at the outbreak of World War II. The text is in the artist's hand in black ink on terracotta-colored cardstock, and reads "Man Ray is showing his imaginary portrait of a Frenchman of the eighteenth century - in his new studio - 1245 Vine Street Hollywood from 3 to 5 until January 13". This is accompanied by Man Ray's hand-stamped woodblock cartouche bearing the initials MR in black ink. A most handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item - the only documentation of what we believe to be Man Ray's first Los Angeles exhibition - showing some slight age-toning, a few minor handling creases, and a tiny surface scratch along with a barely visible oily spot on the recto. While there is no mailing envelope to verify its provenance, this announcement was acquired by us along with a group of material that had belonged to the legendary local bookseller Jake Zeitlin who became close friends with the artist and his wife during their Los Angeles sojourn.

Corbett, John & Josiah McElheny. FREAK ART SCRAPBOOK: CHICAGO'S ARMORY SHOW IN PRINT, 1913. Chicago: Corbett vs. Dempsey Modern Art & Uncommon Objects, 2013. First Edition. Folio. Illustrated Wrappers. Art Monograph. As New. np (48pp), profusely illustrated in color. Designed by Sonnenzimmer. "In 1913, the year that the Armory Show hit Chicago, an anonymous local artist gathered every newspaper clipping from the infamous Art Institute exhibition into a sensational handmade document. "Freak Art Scrapbook" presents this folk ledger of the key showcase of American and European art in the early 20th century, a collection of witty and vitriolic snippets, much of it dripping with satire as nearly an entire city took to lampooning modern art. Lovingly reproduced in all its bilious, acidic yellow, sporting pre-jazz cartoons that snicker repeatedly at Marcel Duchamp's "Nude Descending A Staircase," the scrapbook in fact turns out to be a complex and many layered artifact, not only a register of the Midwestern response to modernism, but a fascinating glimpse of the central arguments about populism and the vanguard". A brand new, pristine example of this fortuitously discovered, invaluable document lovingly reproduced by Chicago's estimable Corbett vs. Dempsey Modern Art & Uncommon Objects on the hundredth anniversary of The Armory Show. 0-9884492-8-5 Inventory Number: 022881

A handsome example of the 1979 Pompidou French language edition bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "For Melinda and De Wain with my very best greetings from your Pontus" from curator Pontus Hulten in black ink on the half title page showing some overall light wear, handling and soiling. De Wain is the noted Los Angeles-based Light and Space artist De Wain Valentine, and Melinda (sic) is his former partner and gallerist Malinda Wyatt, from whom we acquired this directly.
