A mystery box arrived at the Library today. In it, an altered copy of In Search of the Miraculous (1949), Pyotr Ouspensky’s account of the teachings of mystic George Gurdjieff. This copy belonged to artist and occultist John Graham, whose painting Two Sisters (1944) is in the MoMA collection. Update: the box was supposed to go to the Department of Drawings, which holds a sketchbook, among other works by the artist. - jt
