“Le Volume Bleu et Jaune” villa Medics.

(Rome): Academie de France, 1974.  First edition.  Octavo.  381 pages.  French and Italian text.  Scarce and superb catalogue for the exhibition at the Academie de France A Rome, 21 June – 14 July, 1974, and at Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais a Paris, 15 March – 5 May, 1975. The volume is extensive documentation of a project executed at the villa Medici in Rome from 1972-1974 where four students studied one room in the villa for two years with particular emphasis on the effect of light from one window in the room.  Illustrated with numerous intriguing illustrations, including tipped-in colour plates.  A very good copy, inscription to Mrs Walter N Thayler on half title, in photo-illustrated wrappers.  Published in an edition of 2000 numbered copies but far scarce en commerce than the limitation would suggest.
