Description

    With Twelve Original Lithographs Numbered and Signed by Dali, One of Only 250 Copies

    Salvador Dali. The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac. 13 Original Lithographs. Paris and New York: Leon Amiel, [1967].

    The complete portfolio, in an edition limited to 250 copies on Arches wove paper, of which this is number 7, with twelve lithographs numbered and signed by Dali (the thirteenth - the frontispiece - is signed by Dali on the stone). Large folio. Thirteen color lithographs, each sheet measuring approximately 20.5 x 28.75 inches. Text by Nicolas Sokoloff. Printed by Fernand Mourlot, Paris.

    Individual lithographs and accompanying loose signatures of text, as issued, laid into printed portfolio and housed in the original beige cloth clamshell box. Occasional offsetting, as usual. Fine.

    As a counterpart to Sokoloff's text, the thirteen lithographs executed for this magnificent edition brilliantly illustrate the astrological signs of the zodiac with Dali's characteristic vibrant color and dreamlike symbolism, exemplifying the surrealist style. A beautiful collection.


    More Information:

    Box: a couple of faint spots to cloth; minor fraying at corners; the top and bottom sides of the front tray of the clamshell case - at the spine edge - are splitting or cracking, resulting in a loose top compartment of the clamshell box.
