Also signed (in a faint marker) by Dali on the preceding page. "Les Diners de Gala, the opulent cookbook that [Dali] conceived and illustrated, sets out a surrealist gastro-aesthetics that is at once visceral and ascetic, Dionysian and Catholic. [It] showcases Dali's ornamentation of menus from such legendary restaurants as Maxim's and La Tour d'Argent and features the recipes of their chefs. Dali stages himself within the sumptuous culinary mise-en-scene. Les Diners de Gala moves between 'sado-masochistic pleasure', 'acute sybaritism', Rabelaisian scatology, religious ecstasy, and anaesthetic asceticism." (Richard Gough, On Cooking). With 136 recipes in 12 categories: exotic dishes; eggs & sea food; first course; meats; snails & frogs; fish & shell fish; game & poultry; pork; vegetables; aphrodisiacs; desserts; hors-d' oeuvre.

Dino Campana (1885 - 1932) Wikipedia: "An Italian visionary poet. His fame rests on his only published book of poetry, the Canti orfici ("Orphic Songs"), as well as his wild and erratic personality. … He is often seen as an Italian example of a poète maudit." Cambridge Encyclopedia, online: "Poet, born in Marradi, NC Italy. His life was blighted by a serious mental illness which forced him to spend long periods of time in mental hospitals, where he eventually died. His work greatly influenced modern Italian poetry, and he is considered a forerunner of the Ermetismo movement. His Canti orfici (1914), a collection which combines verse and poetic prose, is characterized by an intensely lyrical style which elevates the everyday to a symbolic dimension." Horacio Armani, a former literary editor of the newspaper La Nacin (Buenos Aires) — poet, literary critic, anthologist, translator of Italian poetry.
