Beverly Hills: Copley Galleries, 1948. Ray, Man. Small quarto. (40)ff., rectos only. One of five hundred copies. An illustrated alphabet of common words, "divested of their prosaic meaning and finally projected into the domain of greater emotional exclamations." Contains an unexpected thirty-eight black & white images, as the artist did not limit himself to just one word per letter on his way from anchor to zinc. Each page has a handwritten word incorporated into a related image, some more explicitly related than others. An additional illustration can be found on the upper cover. Bound in boards with a linen spine, in the original plastic jacket. Flyleaf inscribed and dated by the artist. A fine copy.
