About this Item: James Thrall Soby: Random House, NY & Cahiers d'Art, Paris: n.d. [1934]., Hartford, Connecticut:, 1934. Comb binding. Condition: Very Good. [vi], 104 [+8], [ii]. The contents - the text pages, and Ray's wonderful photographs - are clean and unmarked, corners good, with small tears to the binder holes at the spine ends. There is a faint greying of some white page areas from offsetting, and the residue of a small pencilled price to the title page. The colour photograph front cover is clean and complete, with a crease across the upper corner, tiny creases adjacent to the spine, a few short rubbed striations to the top edge, and minimal scuffs to the edges. The white rear cover has a few minor marks, a 5mm closed tear to the leading edge, and a small loss of laminate to the bottom corner. Large quarto, 31x24.5cms, with the original white plastic comb binder. As often, this is damaged: the top two circlets have gone, and the third is present but detached: however, the pages turn easily without snagging. Text in French and English throughout (German and English in the case of Duchamp). Man Ray's introduction is set at the beginning of the book; the four contributors' texts, which introduce groupings of the photographs, are titled: The visages of woman; Men before the mirror; When things dream; and Rayographs 1921-1928. A legendary production - and a very satisfactory copy. [The 'Deuxieme Edition' / 'Second Edition' printed onto the title pages of unsold (first edition) copies was the publisher's ruse in the hope of boosting sales.] Now housed and conserved in a custom-made felt-lined black buckram-covered Solander box with Man Ray's name blocked in silver to the spine to match the cover title. [Heavy Item] First edition [spuriously stated 'Second Edition']. Seller Inventory # 19347120
