Inscribed to the Belgian surrealist and one-time Dadaist René Magritte, with a few pencilled annotations to the lower cover which might be in the painter's hand. Arnaud has written on the first leaf 'a René Magritte Amicalement N.A.' picking out the letters 'DADA' vertically in his inscription. Arnaud's brief history of Dadaism is browned, with folds and fraying to the paper edges and along the fold of the spine. On the lower cover are written in pencil about a dozen numbers, as if calculations but not quite, in an unidentified hand which may be that of Magritte, but must post-date Arnaud's gift of this book to the artist. The association between this historian of Dadaism and one of the movement's exponents is an excellent one. pp579-604.
