Descripción Servire Press, The Hague, 1935. Paperback. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. Short texts by Georges Braque, Eugene Jolas, Maria Jolas, Henri Matisse, Andre Salmon & Tristan Tzara. Published with the emperimental literary journal Transition, No. 23. A fascinating account of the Modernist period in Paris from its key figures. From the introduction by Eugene Jolas "Miss Gertrude Stein’s memoirs, published last year under the title of Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, having brought about a certain amount of controversial comment, Transition has opened its pages to several of those she mentions who, like ourselves, find that the book often lacks accuracy. This fact and the regrettable possibility that many less informed readers might accept Miss Stein’s testimony about her contemporaries, make it seem wiser to straighten out those points with which we are familiar before the book has had time to assume the character of historic authenticity." 8.75x5.5" 15pp. Near fine, clean pages with minimal wear, glassine dustjacket.
