68-page catalogue, with text in Czech with a brief summary in English, and many black and white plates. As explained here, the Moderna as applied to photography generally encompasses the photography following Art Nouveau and preceding "pure modern" photography. Lots of portraits, a number of nude studies, and those famous shots of Schiele by Trcka. This copy withdrawn from a library, with stamp and pencil notation to copyright page and remains of a label to the base of the spine; otherwise, the catalogue has been folded and thus creased and has light corner wear.
