        CODEX SERAPHINIANUS

      Milano Franco Maria Ricci Editore 1981 Due Volumi 4° grande. Pagine 96 + 100 Legatura in tutta seta nera con titolo in oro ai dorsi ed ai piatti, ed un'illustrazione applicata al piatto anteriore di ciascun volume. Ogni voume. è conservato nel cofanetto editoriale. Al colophon del secondo volume firma autografa dell'autore. Edizione originale, di quattromila copie numerate e firmate (il nostro esemplare è il n° 3635). Scritto, in un corsivo di impronta semitica inventato, e illustrato dall'artista romano Luigi Serafini tra il 1976 ed il 1978, il 'Codex Seraphianus' è ormai diventato un libro di culto, amato in tutto il mondo per la sua capacità evocativa e per la prorompente inventiva delle sue immagini (centinaia di disegni riprodotti a colori). 'L'enciclopedia di unvisionario', come ebbe a definirlo Calvino; una sorta di codice miniato, che esplora in modo assolutamente personale e surrealista le varie branche del sapere e dell'esperienza di un mondo immaginario, alieno al nostro, ma che lo riflette palesemente. Come sottolinea Franco Maria Ricci in una sua comunicazione al lettore su foglio volante allegato al Codex, il primo volume di questa enciclopedia è 'dedicato alle scienze della natura (botanica, zoologia, teratologia, chimica, fisica e meccanica)', mentre il secondo è 'dedicato alle scienze dell'uomo (anatomia, etnologia, antropologia, mitologia, linguistica, cucina, giochi moda e architettura).' Esemplare perfetto.
