Description: Introduction by Dachine Rainer. Illustrated by Chwast with 9 hand-colored linocuts on 12 french-fold pages. Slim oblong 8vo, decorated patterned paper boards with a printed title label on upper cover; plain green cloth spine. New York The 6x9 Press, 1957. First edition. Boards are just a touch darkened at edges, still a near fine copy of this scarce book.

Comments: An early work by Chwast, an AIGA Medal recipient and major influence on modern graphic design and typography. In this work, Chwast illustrates nine battles -- from Marathon in 490 B.C. to Ypres in the first World War -- accompanied by quotations which reflect his pacifist philosophy.
