From the flap:

Monsieur Andre Breton is the leader of the Surrealiste movement in France--the most vital movement in contemporary art and literature. In this pamphlet, specially prepared for the occasion of the first International Surrealist Exhibition to be held in London, M. Breton explains exactly what surrealism stands for in painting, sculpture and politics. It is revealed, not as one more little sectarian affair destined to flutter the cafes of London and Paris, but as a deliberate adnd even a desperate attempt to transform the world. Surrealism may amuse you, it may shock you, it may scandalize you, it may transform you, but one thing is certain: you will not be able to ignore it.    [Book ID # 1628]
