Product Description

(Milano). 4to. LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION, one of 2,500 copies. With bookplate of Camilla McGrath. Text in Italian. Gentle rubbing to boards. Slight fading and soiling to spine. Minor soiling and shelfwear to slipcase. VG in VG slipcase.

The fantastical watercolors of 19th century Austrian craftsman Aloys Zotl languished in obscurity for decades before their rediscovery by André Breton, the founder of surrealism, who proclaimed them to be 'the most sumptuous bestiary ever seen'. In this beautiful limited edition, published in 1992, Zotl's lavish images are accompanied by text (in Italian) by Argentinian author Julio Cortázar.
