* DALI, Salvador (1904-1989). Autograph manuscript signed ("Salvador Dali"), in French, to an unnamed recipient, n.p., n.d.
2 pages, 8vo (183 x 138 mm), on a small placemat, inkblotting, a few creases and light stains. 12 small pen surrealist sketches. Translated: "And it is precisely in the invisible anguish…of the void, in these vast horizons filled with nothing...that Salvador Dali plunges and submerges his nails, his fingers, his hands, his wrists, his arms and his shoulders, so that he…causes the ecstatic soul to spring out through his mouth…We will think he is learning about the true anguish of the void of his love and his arms…his saliva, his own back…To fall again off the precipice, into the void of ejaculation, to put it properly, which is nothing more than the very delicate mystery of which exstasy is made."
12 ORIGINAL PEN SKETCHES BY DALI on the second page, depicting two human figures in costume, a bust profile of a woman, a Surrealist face, two bones, the capital of a column, a stylized chess pawn, three elaborate ladies hats, and a five-pointed star with a crescent moon.
