Edition Information:
This composition was issued in the "Together" edition and in the illustrated book "Hang On."

About the "Together" edition:
The hand additions vary across the edition. For comparison, see other impressions in the Evolving Composition Diagram below. Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression in this edition as a study. (Usually in this catalogue, the term study describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.)

About the "Hang On" illustrated book edition:
Of the announced edition of 9 unbound and 12 bound, only 9 unbound examples were realized.

There are varying hand additions across the edition of illustrated books. Impression number 5/9 was also available for examination by MoMA cataloguers, but was not available for reproduction. In that example, plate 10 has blue watercolor gouache, red and black crayon, and pencil additions.
Curatorial Remarks:
The color of the hand additions, paper type, and impression number could not be fully documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
