Quinn, Edward & Roland Penrose, Picasso at Work, New York, Doubleday & Company, Inc., n.d. [1964], first edition, folio (13.25" x 10.25"), HB in dj, color-illus off-white glazed paper boards w/ gilt spine titles in clear acetate dj & green paper obi w/ b&w titles, VG / VG. Edges worn, boards darkened, rear back corner bumped. Original clear plastic dj slightly yellowed, chipped at corners.

Unpaginated, 282 photographs, 52 in color. Penrose and Quinn were both friends of Picasso.

"Pablo Picasso, well on in his eighties, is enjoying the most productive period of his long life. THis book captures the exctiement of the artist at work--and occasional moments of relaxation and fun with friends and family. Edward Quinn has caught the aspets of Picasso's daily life with remarkable intuitiveness, and Roland Penrose in his text fills in the details that the photographs cannot show. A remarkable feature of the book is the famous mural-painting sequence, performed for the motion pictures; here are preserved for all time the advanced phases of the mural which were erased as Picasso moved onward toward completion of the work."

Uncommon in original clear dust cover with green obi title band.    [Book ID # 1859]
