“The Blind Man Must See the Sun”

Paris: Musée National d’Art Moderne, 1977
108 pp., tall square 8vo. Sewn signatures bound into stiff card wrappers, in printed dust-jacket.
Bump to crown of spine, with resulting creases in upper corner (not affecting text or plates), otherwise very good, in a clean jacket with repair to top of rear panel near spine (from same bump).

Text established by Danielle Régnier-Bohler, prefaces and notes by Jean Clair, with a chronology, list of personages, and iconographic notebook with eleven black-and-white reproductions. 

An unfinished novel chronicling the author’s relationship with Duchamp, by a close friend and collaborator; the cast also includes Picabia, the Arensbergs, and Arthur Cravan, among others. Roché was a journalist, art collector, and art dealer (he introduced Leo and Gertrude Stein to Picasso); a central facilitator of Dada, he was a co-creator of The Blind Man (along with Duchamp and Beatrice Wood). Late in his life he published the novels Jules and Jim and Two English Girls (both made into films by Truffaut).

The last in the set of four volumes devoted to Duchamp’s life and work, published on the occasion of the first major retrospective in France.
