Les métamorphoses érotiques - choix de dessins exécutés de 1940 à 1968.
A L'Érotiade, [Paris]. 1969 - First edition. No. 99 of 300 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being one of 120 copies printed "sur vélin rives", and with an original drypoint signed by him. With a 2-page Introduction by the artist "Contre la pornographie et l'obscénité pour le dieu Eros et l'érotisme''. Quarto. Loose gatherings in satin boards, as published. The artist gives full rein to the ''critical-paranoid method" in which the imagination takes ''found'' images and pulls from them new meanings. Here for the most part he turns and twists anodyne engravings from nineteenth century catalogues and schoolbooks into obscene and sometimes disturbing forms. Dali defined his paranoid-critical method as, "a spontaneous method of irrational knowledge based upon the critical-interpretive association of delirious phenomena". André Breton hailed this as an ''instrument of primary importance'' for the Surrealist movement.Fine in near-fine cloth slipcase slightly rubbed at the corners. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
