Today I cataloged a complete run of the important Dada and Surrealist periodical Littérature, produced by Aragon, André Breton and Philippe Soupault. Emory’s set is unbound and in incredibly good condition. The first series (1919-21) was not illustrated but featured literary works by André Gide, Blaise Cendrars and Léon-Paul Fargue among others, and that was just the first issue! The second series (1922-24) continued the high quality literary content but with wonderful illustrations by Man Ray, Francis Picabia, Georgio de Chirico and others.

Really cool stuff that you can see as the complete work has been digitized by the University of Iowa and can be seen here:
