La Grande Parade des Chats

Paris: Agori, 1973. First edition. Pictorial boards with Fini-designed cats, printed paper label on spine, in publisher’s slipcase with same pattern and printed label. One of 230 numbered copies on Arches (another 20 on Japan and 35 for the author were also produced), signed by Fini on the colophon. Contains sixty original full color lithographs, each signed by Fini in pencil. Some offsetting to verso of each print, head and tail of spine a bit rubbed, spine label a bit browned, overall near fine and solid. A book often broken for its individual signed lithographs, and fairly rare. In contrast to the macabre darkness of some of Fini’s other work, this collection of anthropomorphic cats is bright and light-hearted. OCLC locates one copy only, Beinecke. Item #2231
