This book is quite rare, but sells for about $30 with dust jacket.
There are a number of popular print suites reproduced here, like:
- The Divine Comedy
- Dalinean Flowers
The Divine Comedy
Park West Gallery (1993)
Comes as a softcover publication.
This catalog features 100 Dali illustrations from Dante’s Divine Comedy.
Many of the reproductions are in color, but some are in black and white. The colors are rich and the images are sharp. They come in a variety of sizes: full-page, half-page, and one-ninth of a page.
At the end of the catalog is a brief description of each work.
This catalog is pretty rare, but when you do find it, expect to pay about $25. If you are looking for all of the illustrations in the Divine Comedy suite in color, check out the Everling publication or Silverstate’s Fifty Year Retrospective.
Salvador Dalí Originals: The Dr. Edmund Klein Collection
I obtained this 29-page catalog in an online auction before it was even released for public consumption.
It contains a photo of one sculpture and reproductions of a number of sketches done by Dali for his personal physician, Dr. Edmund Klein.
Most of these sketches appear on the endpage and/or title pages of books by, or about, Dali.
Dali: A Study of His Art-In-Jewels
by The Owen Cheatham Foundation (1959/1970)
When I finally found a nice copy of this book for a decent price, I bought it. And I am glad I did. The hardcover copy I got came with the slipcase intact. The book has tipped-in color plates on every other page.
The photos of the jewels are done well, and the colors are vibrant. A very nice book considering its age. With this book, I also received supplements for three additional jewels not included in the original publication, bringing the total jewels in this edition to 28 + 3.
Be aware that there are several printings of this catalog (1959, 1965, and 1970). It appears that there are printings subsequent to 1970, presumably with additional jewels. The 1970 printing has 36 jewels bound into the edition.
You can expect to pay $40 and up for this book. If buying the hardcover, look for the slipcase, it has a nice color photo on the front.
