New York: the museum, 1933. Unpaginated text and sepia plates on coated stock, perhaps totalling perhaps seventy pages, hardbound in 9x6 inch clothbacked titled boards. A fair-only copy, with large adhesion scars to both covers, cloth spine silverfished and frayed, interior foxed with signs of handling, textblock a little shaky in the casing. One of 1,500 copies issued at this time. Find photoportraits of Picasso et alia, monochrome reproductions (strange to see these major works in b&w vignette!), sixty-seven artists represented in the gallery itself; no ownership or institutional markings except for a nice small bookseller's fiche in Japanese.
"The Gallery is open, free, Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Saturdays 8.a.m. to 5.p.m. It is closed on Sundays and legal holidays... The Gallery was opened on 12 December, 1927, and it is a matter of surprise that hitherto no museum of this character had existed in the United States, the most modern of all countries.."
