From Library Journal:
This is the catalog of an exhibition held at the Pace Gallery in New York, with essays by six art writers and Claude Picasso and Francoise Gilot. Picasso saved almost everythingselections from his notebooks scan over 60 years. He had a personal calligraphic shorthand and monumental fertility of ideas. Six complete sketchbooks and fragments of 36 others are included as "Saltimbanques" give way to "Demoiselles," "Sabines," etc. Commentary runs the gamut from scholarly to personal reminiscence. An expensive, quality production of interest to artists, art school libraries, modern art history collections. Hara Seltzer, NYPL
