Book Description Atheneum Publishers, New York, 1961. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First American Edition. [The Strange Life of Objects : 35 Centuries of Art Collecting & Collectors] {Atheneum Publishers; New York; 1961; Cloth; Very Good/Good; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; First American Edition.} Boards slightly faded along head and tail edges; corners bumped; edges slightly soiled; dj rubbed, worn and chipped, especially along spine creases, head and tail edges; closed tear at rear fore edge crease; upper corner of front flap clipped. Illustrated with 48 reproductions in half-tone. "This book tells about what happens to objects of art after their creation: about the foibles of collectors, the variations of fashion, the decisions of dealers, the fluctuations of value. It includes a penetrating, amusing and highly original study of the psychology of collecting--the hoarding, treasuring and amassing instincts. Frankly and with great wit, the author concerns himself with art objects in many societies: as loot, as value, as status symbols, as enrichment, as learning. Filled with anecdotes, tales and inside information, The Strange Life of Objects is also stuffed like a treasure chest with imposing names, huge prices and deeds of bravado connected with buying art or selling it or taking it away from others." Listing updated 3-3-2006. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 001255
