Small 4to. 22.5 by 19 cm. 42 pp. This is a work interesting from a number of angles: it is evidence of the unique spell Chaplin cast on society, setting him apart from any other movie actor of the day; it signals an early acceptance of film as an artistic medium; it represents a convergence and blurring of high and lowbrow culture of the day; it is a foray by Leger into book production and a fun, accessible application of his form of cubism. Goll (1891-1950) was a Franco-German poet, born in Lorraine, who wrote in both languages and had close social and collaborative ties with many Expressionistic and Surrealistic artists of the day, including George Grosz, Andre Breton, Marc Chagall, and of course Leger. Spine repaired but a touch of roughness to it remains, especially in contrast to the love condition of the boards.
