Marg, a magazine dedicated to the arts, was first published in October 1946, a year before India's independence. The publication was founded by novelist and writer Mulk Raj Anand, who served as Editor for several of its volumes, and supported by the industrialist and philanthropist J.R.D. Tata.

Over the next decades, Anand, along with Assistant Editor Anil de Silva and Art Advisor Karl Khandalavala, led and firmly established this independent quarterly journal as one of the country's most well-regarded publications in the fields of art and architecture.

The two issues included in the present lot are from the very first volume of the magazine and were published in January and April 1947 respectively. The former includes articles contributed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Karl Khandalavala, Herman Goetz and Paul Zils, while the latter includes pieces by John Terry, L.C. van Geyzel, Martin Russell and Kekoo Gandhy among others.
