A Book of Battles.
New York 6x9 Press 1957 Oblong octavo. 12 ff., frenchfold. One of an unspecified, but undoubtedly small edition. Illustrated with nine hand-colored linocuts by Chwast. With an Introduction by Dachine Rainer, the anarchist writer whose novella, A Room at the Inn would be published the following year. An early work by Chwast, an AIGA Medal recipient and major influence on modern graphic design and typography. In this work, Chwast illustrates nine battles -- from Marathon in 490 B.C. to Ypres in the first World War -- accompanied by quotations, the effect of which, as Rainer notes in her introduction, is "to give rise to a number of provocative speculations on the desirability of an enduring 'Cease Fire!'" Bound in cloth backed decorated paper boards with a printed title label on upper cover. Slightest edgewear, else fine.
