Hardcover with dust jacket, green cloth with silver spine titles, light green top stain, 15.5 by 21.5 cm, 136 pp. plus 16-pages of black and white photos. The hardcover is near fine but for a faint diagonal scratch on the back cover; the jacket is very good with light edge wear and a crease on the front flap. From the jacket: “The life and work of Marcel Duchamp, one of the major figures and twentieth-century art, have always been subject to mystification and controversy. In this unusually revealing series of interviews held shortly before his death in 1968, and now available for the first time in English, Duchamp provides a unique self-portrait as he sums up his life and career in a frank and amusing recollection of events, people, and attitudes. The closest equivalent to an autobiography we shall ever have, these conversations with French art critic Pierre Cabanne are, as Duchamp himself put it, ‘from the horse’s mouth.’ Translated by Ron Padgett, with an editor’s note by Robert Motherwell, a preface by Salvador Dali written especially for this edition, and an appreciation by Jasper Johns. The documentation by Bernard Karpel, Chief Librarian of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, includes a selected bibliography, a chronology, and sixteen pages of rare photographs of Duchamp at various stages in his career.”
