A very good, complete copy of this English language edition of a double issue of Verve #27/#28, originally published in Paris in 1952.  The articles, printed in both French and English, engage in comparative art historical criticism, as in the case of Rembrandt, Hokousai, and Van Gogh.  Illustrated with a combination of full-page prints and tipped-in plates.

Under the boldly graphic dust jacket are covers designed by Georges Braque.

Edition limited to 1000 copies.  Typography and heliogravure by master printers Draeger Freres; lithography printed by Mourlot Freres.  

Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
