Lot 566: Signed book: Comte de Lautreamont: Oeuvres Completes. Paris: Librarie Jose Corti, 1938. Softcover, 4.75 x 7.5, 325 pages. Signed and inscribed on the reverse of the frontispiece depicting Dali's 'imaginary portrait' of Lautreamont in fountain pen, "A Marta, Hommages, Dali," incorporating the inscription into a wild sketch of a landscape featuring an angelic figure and ant-like creature. In fine condition, with a couple stray ink marks to the sketch and slight soiling to covers. Full sketches by Dali are extremely desirable, with this example being especially detailed and well-thought-out. That this comes in a book of the works of Comte de Lautreamont (the pseudonym of Isidore-Lucien Ducasse) is also of note, as his work had a profound influence on the Surrealists and the Situationist movements.
