Les Vins De Gala Salvadore Dali, First French Edition

By Salvador Dali. Published by Draeger & Vilo. 1977. In French. 293 pages.

In this delightfully eccentric guide, counterpoint to the very famous Cookbook Les Diners de Gala, the master surrealist shares his passion for the nectar of the gods. The book discusses the many myths associated with wine through texts and works of the artist also sensual as subversive, and remains faithful to this maxim: ‘A true connoisseur doesn't drink wine, he tastes its secrets.’

Large hardcover with pictorial dust jacket. The book is bursting with imagery, and features more than 140 illustrations by Dalí. Many of these are appropriated artworks, including various classical nudes, all of them reconstructed with suitably Surrealist, provocative touches, like Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus, one of Dalí’s favorite points of reference over the decades.

Book is over 4 pounds and in a beautiful jacket, now protected in a Mylar cover. A wonderful clean copy of this first edition.
