Duchamp's "Large Glass," on which he worked from 1912 to 1923, was "an art form without parallel, a unique marriage of visual and linguistic concepts." The Green Box was published in a limited edition in 1934 with the various documents reproduced in facsimile as individual items contained in a box, now presented here in Hamilton’s translations and encompassing photographs, full-page drawings, diagrams, various typographic formats, annotations, vignettes, and musical notation. Several later editions were published. Item #2187
