Only four years later, a major Surrealist exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art catapulted Surrealism into the cultural limelight and the attention of high-fashion magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. Soon the art of Man Ray was selling cologne and swimwear and the manic Salvador Dali was designing windows for Bonwit's and a pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Even Andre Breton and his circle, exiled in Manhattan during World War II, were unable to assert control over this new kind of Surrealism. If anything, their cultural dislocation in these years gave Americans the edge in developing new Surrealist concepts and new movements such as Abstract Expressionism

"Joseph Cornell's Manual of marvels introduces one of Joseph Cornell's most brilliant yet least-known works. The 'Untitled book object : Journal d'agriculture pratique et journal de l'agriculture, ' as the work is formally known, is extremely fragile ... Our ambition has been to make the entire work accessible. To that end, Joseph Cornell's Manual of marvels includes an interactive CD that will allow the reader to explore the entire book; a collection of essays about Cornell and the making of the Untitled book object; and an abridged facsimile edition of the book."--[Vol. 2], p. 5
