London: The Tate Gallery, 1971. 1st Edition. Small oblong folio, publisher's white cloth under plain paper boards, spine stamped in black, upper board blindstamped.
Tate Gallery exhibition catalog (April 28 - June 6, 1971) for a landmark show of work by Minimalist sculptor and art theorist Morris. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white plates; with a preface by Tate director Norman Reid, texts by Compton and Sylvester, a biographical summary, an interview with Morris, and selections from Morris's writings reprinted from various art journals. The exhibition was closed after five days because of damage to some of the large-scale installations at the hands of the visiting public; it was re-opened a week later in a scaled-down format and ran to conclusion without further incident. An inside rear pocket houses a folding poster of photos illustrating the use of Morris's ramps and platforms, as well as his drawing of the original exhibition's floorplan. Light soiling to spine, small adhesive label residue to verso of upper board, small bookseller's adhesive label to title-page, light offsetting to rear free endpaper from printed poster. Very good.
