About this Item: Hartford, Conn.: James Thrall Soby, Hartford, 1934. First edition, with the fictitious second edition labeled on the copyright page. Tall quarto, original spiral bound color-photographic stiff paper wrappers. Inscribed by Man Ray on the title page, "For Roberta Man Ray Paris 1963" with a small drawing of an eye, and a six-line poem in Man Ray's hand adhered to the inside front cover, which reads. "For Roberta (personal) Even her hands blushed- but her hair- remained as pale as her teeth- menacing-so- I took her hand- and let it go- at that. Man." The recipient was art dealer and friend of Man Ray's, Roberta Kimmel Cohn. In very good condition with some rubbing and a light crease to the front panel. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. "This was Man Ray's first monograph, and his friends pulled out all the stops to herald it" (Roth, 80). It contains poetry and essays by the leading figures of the Dada and Surrealist movements: Andre Breton, Paul Eluard, Marcel Duchamp (written under his famous pseudonym "Rrose Selavy") and Tristan Tzara. "Man Ray's work introduced a particular note [to Surrealism], since he used photography and recognized early on that this medium could reproduce the effects of object-based art in two-dimensional form. Photography was in a position to preserve the ordinary and to unleash surreal effects" (Icons of Photography, 26). In a short preface entitled "The Age of Light," Ray cites "individual human emotion and desire" as the "only inspirations" for his pictures. Text in English and French. First edition, second issue, with the fictitious "Second Edition" on the cancel title page placed there by the publisher, who "attempted to generate demand where none existed by suggesting the edition had sold out. After replacing the title pages of these copies. with one stating second edition, he returned them for sale" (Roth, 80). See also Parr & Badger I:108. Seller Inventory # 15006

About this Item: James Thrall Soby: Hartford, Connecticut and Random House: NY nd (?), 1934. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 12.5 x 9.5", plain red buckram w/original wraps cover bound in, contents worn, soiled, hinges loose. "With a portrait by Picasso, texts by Andre Breton, Paul Eluard, Rrose Selavy, Tristan Tzara". "Second Edition" WITH A CLICHÉ-VERRE SILVER PRINT BOOKPLATE "1948 GREETINGS FROM JULIET AND MAN RAY", INSCRIBED "TO GEORGE HODEL" AND SIGNED BY MAN RAY, ADDING 1949. Now for the good part. George Hodel was a Hollywood, CA physician who, in a book written by his son, Steve, was accused of being the "Black Dahlia" murderer. According to Steve, the awkward pose of the body (of Elizabeth Short) was in imitation of the pose of the model in Man Ray's photograph "The Minotaur", though critics of the theory state that it was unlikely Dr. Hodel was familiar with the photograph. While the photo is not in this book, this is proof that Dr. Hodel was familiar with Man Ray and his work! The mystery thickens!!! A one-of-a-kind piece. Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: Editions Jeanne Bucher, Paris, 1936. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Limited edition of 270 stamp-numbered copies (this being #232). (Copies #1-20 were issued with an alternate cover and signed by Hugnet and Duchamp; an additional 24 lettered copies were printed on blue paper.) Soft cover. Photographically illustrated and embossed stiff vellum wrappers with hand-sewn red thread binding; no dust jacket as issued. Cover design by Marcel Duchamp, based on a photograph by Man Ray. Poems and photo-collages by Georges Hugnet. Unpaginated (90 pp.), with 20 plates printed using spot color and letterpress text and ornamental illustrations printed in dark green. 11-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches.[Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), and in Michel and Michèle Auer, Collection M. + M. Auer - une histoire de la photographie. (Hermance, Switzerland: Éditions M+M, 2003.)]. Near Fine (moderate surface wear and wear to the extremities, 1/4-inch closed tear and crease to the upper edge of the front cover, slight creasing along the binding, stray ink marks and toning to the rear cover, Japanese publisher's sticker (Meiji Shobo / Tokyo-Osaka) on inside front cover; interior pages have a few stray marks and light creases, but are intact with no tears). From David Levi Strauss, writing in The Book of 101 Books: "This is Georges Hugnet's first volume of "poémes-découpages." The title echoes André Mallarmé's Un Coup de Dés N'Abolira Jamais le hasard (1895), and Hugnet's poems, printed on the left-hand pages of the book, mirror the usual spacing and various typefaces and sizes of Un Coup de Dés.Hugnet had joined the Surrealists by 1932, and the collages on the right-hand pages, centered around nude images cut out of Paris Magazine, rehearse typical Surrealist themes.The cover by Marcel Duchamp spells out the title in letters containing the names of a whole Surrealist pantheon, including Sade, Freud, Rimbaud, Paracelsus, Swift, Heraclitus, Roussel, Chaplin, Jarry, Uccello, and Saint-Just, and also a Man Ray photograph of Duchamp's assisted readymade "Why Not Sneeze, Rrose Sélavy?" consisting of 152 marble cubes the size of sugar cubes, a thermometer, and a cuttlebone inside a small cage. Duchamp's object was included this same year in the exhibition Fantastic Art, Dada, and Surrealism, organized by Alfred Barr at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Hugnet wrote the preface for the catalogue.".
