A catalogue of the later (largely) marble sculptures of one of the founders of the Dada movement. "For the late Jean Arp the last decade of his life was an extraordinarily creative period. The many official commissions he received during those years enabled him to produce sculptures designed specifically for open-air settings, which suited them far better than the confined interiors of museums, where much of his previous work is displlayed. Arp's sculptures are almost primal in their simplicity and clarity of pure form. In fact, Arp believed that the creation of his work was so natural that he likened it to the biological process of fruit being borne by a tree. Therefore, much of his out-of-door sculpture assumes a totally naturalaspect in a landscape." - from the dj. Vg in lightly rubbed, nicked dj.

Art and Technics, London, 1951, 
ARROW, John. New Design for Sail. London : Art and Technics, [58 Frith Street, W1], 1951. First Editon. Pp (8),9-88 + frontispiece. The plate section (pp.57-88) contains 57 b&w photos. Text Illustrations. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Toy 4714. "Unlike many of the Englishman's traditional sports, Yachting has not faded with the way of life that brought it into being. On the contrary more people are sailing than ever betore, and they are bringing to their pastime a striving for technical expertise wholly in line with the urges of their environment. But yachtsmen today not only thinkharder about their sailing—they think harder aoout their boats, large or s mall, than did their forefathers. They have grasp of the relation between design and performance which is quite new in a sport in which the amateur decisively dominates the scene, and they have shown themselves quick to appreciate the advantages which new methods of fabrication, and new materials, may offer them. This discriminating enthusiasm has advanced the art of yacntdesign, still mainly in professional hands like the science of yacht build ing itself, at an unprecedented rate. New Design for Sail synthesizes the various influences and trends which have combined to produce the contemporary sailing vessel, and demonstrates it as a new Classic Type, completely in accord both with the aspirations of modern yachtsmen and the facilities which modern technology has placed at their disposal. The illustrations include over 20 diagrams in the text and nearly 90 photographs. John Arrow has been sailing in all types of yacht for the past 25 years. He has made an extensive study of the latest trends in design, and as Yachting Correspondent for a daily newspaper he has been able to make a critical assessment of performance." (from the dj). Contents : The Hull (Form - Construction - Accommodation); Sails and Running Rigging (Sail Plan - Materials - Running Rigging); Masts, Spars and Standing Rigging (Function); Gear; Conclusion, With index. The plates include "Uffa Fox's Flying 25 (Kingfisher)", "Regatta at Cowes, 1911", "Ranelagh Sailing Club", "Start of the North Sea Race, 1950", "Myth of Malham", and many more.
