1.5: Printed Material and Memorabilia, 1912-1913

Printed material in this series includes a blueprint of the Armory installation floor plan; the 1912 catalog of the Sonderbund Internationale Kunst-Austellung in Cologne, Germany, which was sent to Walt Kuhn by Arthur B. Davies and annotated by both men; exhibition catalogs for the New York, Chicago, and Boston exhibitions; printed exhibition announcements and notices; postcards printed with reproductions of art works; pamphlets published by the organizers of the show; two items of memorabilia including an Armory Show button and a lapel pin; and newspaper clippings.
Several of the catalogs contain annotations. Annotated New York catalogs are marked with prices and other notes; annotated Boston and Chicago catalogs are marked with shipping and packing information. Researchers should note for each of the catalogs, the annotated copies have been digitized. Digitization was not repeated for clean duplicates of catalogs.
An additional annotated catalog can be found in Notes (Series 1.4) under the heading "Prices and Purchasers." Additional clippings can be found in Scrapbooks (Series 1.8). Transcripts of Walt Kuhn's translation of Gauguin's "Noa-Noa" are filed under Writings of Walt Kuhn (Series 1.6).
