London: Tate Gallery, 1970. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's white leatherette, spine stamped in silver, original dust jacket.
Exhibition catalog for the first comprehensive retrospective of proto-Pop artist Richard Hamilton. Notably, Pop art took its name from Hamilton’s 1956 collage “Just What Is It That Makes Today’s Homes So Different, So Appealing?” which depicted a nude body-builder holding a giant Tootsie Pop. Illustrated throughout with reproductions, mostly in black-and-white and with some in color. Light foxing to a few pages. Dust jacket has moderate edgewear and rubbing, 1” closed tear to rear panel and a few smaller chips. Very good. Item #5689
