Hardback.  First edition.  No highlighting, inscriptions or underlining.   Salmon coloured boards and top edge.   Pages clean.  Binding strong.  Housed in a striking dust-jacket by Edward Young.  ‘The difficulty and strangeness of modern art are everywhere discussed.  Those puzzled by it as something more dark than a witch’s riddle will find light and reassurance as well as much to argue about in this collection of eight essays by younger writers.’  W H Auden discusses Psychology and Art.   Louis MacNeice writes on Poetry, and Mr. Grierson on cinema.  Also included is Geoffrey Grigson’s fascinating essay on modern art in which he seems to favour a return to representation in both painting and sculpture.  Condition: patch of rubbing and segment of loss to bottom edge of dust-jacket’s front panel.  Dust-jacket price-clipped with some light wear to top and tail of its spine.  Very slight cracking to front hinge.  Top edge a little marked, otherwise very good.
