About This Item

Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution, 1964. First printing. 77 pp., 7.5 x 10 inches. Sewn signatures glued into card covers, in printed dust-jacket.

Introduction by Jean Adhémar. Printed in Paris; original lithographs and reproductions printed at the Mourlot Press; typography and text printing by the Imprimerie National. Published in an edition of 2000 copies on Velin d’Arches paper, and 200 hors commerce copies on Velin d’Rives.

Slight toning and very light wear to edges of jacket; previous owner’s neat signature and date on blank card cover (hidden under dust-jacket), a couple of openings between signatures very slightly separated, but still sound, with all lithographs bright and clean.

Catalogue for an exhibition sponsored by the French Embassy and circulated by the Traveling Exhibition Service of the Naitional Collection of Fine Arts at the Smithsonian, with twenty original lithographs by Chagall, Picasso, Miró, Matisse, Cocteau, Calder, Giacometti, and a dozen other artists, plus reproductions of works by Picasso, Braque, Villon, and Glarner.

A gorgeous production.

The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance.
