About this Item

First edition. Illustrated profusely throughout with black and white and color photographs and renderings. Thick 4to, publisher’s original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the upper cover and spine. In the original colour dustjacket and slipcase with tipped on pastedown to the front board. 661, [2] pp. An extremely fine, as pristine copy but for some mellowing to the jacket spine panel and a bit of evidence of shelving to the box. A FINE COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. "Art is man’s expression of himself, his world, and his faith throughout all of time and global space. This book, by one of the most powerful and perceptive writers of modern times is a brilliant and provocative inquiry into the meaning of all art. The book is of both philosophical and moral importance. An "imaginary museum", the book is a masterly integration of text and illustration, designed and supervised by Malraux himself. Finely produced--printed in France by heliogravure process on paper especially manufactured in Finland, it is a beautiful book. Malraux was philosopher, archeologist, soldier, politician and novelist. He was one of the most important experts on art of the last century. His great novel, MAN’S FATE, is still considered one of the best French works of the 20th century. He fought in WWII, was captured by the Germans, escaped, became a guerrilla leader, was captured again, and finally liberated when the Americans reached Paris. He was awarded the French Legion of Honor, the Croix de Guerre and the British D.S.O. The book is a masterly tour de force and one of the great critical art works of all time.
