New York: Oxford University Press, 1941. 2 serigraphs in color & photograph of Klee by Josef Albers. 65 illustrations on 62 plates printed one side + 35 pp.,+ all on card stock Cloth-grained grey paper with titling serigraphed in white and light blue. Bound with clear plastic comb binding with wraparound covers. 27.9 x 21.7 cm (leaf size). This copy belonged to the architect Ernest Born and his photographer wife Esther, and it bears their names in his ink printing on the flyleaf. Spine browned; soiling at front edges of covers (light at the front, heavier in the back); some wear at extremities, especially bottom edge; small hole at bottom of front joint. Despite this litany of deficiencies, a far better copy than most. Typically, this beautiful but vulnerable book suffers from broken or detached covers, a broken comb binding; detached pages; missing serigraphs; and other indignities.
