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.
