Paperback. First edition. Sixth issue of this iconic quarterly edited by Myfanwy Piper. Contains Myfanwy’s infamous ‘Order, Order!’ in which she argued for a more expansive and less partisan vision of modern art: ‘So I, when I admire the work of Ernst or of Nicholson, Hepworth or Mondrian, admire it for itself – not as an act of faith or as a commitment to a line of behaviour’. Original green order form tipped-in. Condition: covers slightly toned and lightly marked. Spine worn with some small tearing. Front hinge and binding a little weak, otherwise very good.
