Housed in original dust-wrapper designed by Paul Rand. Edited by a young American avant-garde artist, this anthology assembles into a meaningful pattern many fragmentary essays and documents which reconstruct, in English translation, the world of DADA feeling and speech from its quiet beginnings in New York and Pre-war Paris, the mounting clamour in Zurich, the agitation in Berlin and radical groups elsewhere in Germany, and its vociferous career among the literary elite in Paris in the 1920s. Volume 8 in The Documents of Modern Art series. Includes every major text of DADA as well as documents, objects, journals, reviews, manifestoes, photographs, catalogues, invitations. Condition: Boards and spine sunned and lightly tanned. From the Thames and Hudson reference library with a stamp to top right corner of front endpaper. Dust-wrapper worn with tanning to spine and some light spotting. Spotting to edges of text-block, otherwise very good.
