Picasso and the Human Comedy: A Suite of 180 Drawings by Picasso (Verve #29/30)
by Micehl Leiris
New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1954. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. The 1954 1st edition of this suite of 180 Picasso drawings, which constitutes "Verve" issues 29/30. A solid, VG folio in its pictorial boards (which make up 2 Picasso lithographs themselves). And in a crisp, VG example of the matching pictorial dustjacket, which shows light chipping --and several small closed tears-- at the spine crown and along the upper edges. Still though, solid and very presentable. From the front dustjacket flap: "In this magnificent series of drawings Picaso reviews and comments upon his whole prodigious career. Styles and periods, the persons and inventions that have filled his incomparable canvases are held up before the detached eye of the master. This work has been produced under the direction of Teriade by the Master Printes Draeger Freres for the heliogravure in black and white and Moulot Freres for the lithography in color. The American edition is published through the co-operation of Verve and stands as one of their finest creations."
