The catalogue from his Museum of Modern Art retrospective, featuring many of his most famous works. Arp has drawn a large, abstract sketch - a delightful example of one of his ‘automatic drawings’ - on the front free end page in pencil, signed and inscribed below “to florence and dick, j. arp”. - Autographic condition: some trivial brushing to the graphite in the signature; boos is in excellent condition. Yellow cloth-covered boards; edges rubbed, with tiny tears in cloth at corners and spine-ends; gently shaken with small tear in paper over rear hinge; slightly yellowed. In protective plastic sleeve.
