TO BE CONTINUED UNNOTICED: Some Papers by - Photography] Man Ray [Emmanuel Radni - 1948. 
Beverly Hills: Copley Galleries, 1948. - First edition. Six leaves (12 pages) loosely laid into stiff blue and yellow paper outer wrappers and printed and illustrated glossy pink inner wrappers. Contains comments by Man Ray on his work ("There is no progress in art, any more than there is progress in making love. There are simply different ways of doing it."), especially on the 'Shakespeare Equations' several of which are reproduced here. Designed by Man Ray and Lynton R. Kistler. #12 of 125 copies which include an autographed photograph by the author (out of a total edition of 275 copies. ) In addition to the SIGNED and numbered photograph, this copy is INSCRIBED "To Jim & Evelyn, with affection, Man Ray." Evelyn was Evelyn Dawson, a friend of Juliet, Man Ray's wife, and an occasional model for Man Ray; Jim was her first husband, the photographer James Fitzsimmons. In 1948 both Fitzsimmons and Man Ray were represented at a photography show at the Los Angeles County Museum. Quarto. Very good overall - a little light soiling and toning to the outer covers, the photograph is near fine, with a tiny crease in the margin of one corner. An extremely uncommon item, made even more interesting by the association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
