    1. since i bought this book in the Dean Gallery bookshop in 2000 it has been one of my essential to hand books on surrealism deftly exploring the Freudian dimension of the work of pre WW2 surrealists, it weaves an illuminating web of cultural and poetic resonances around the work of Ernst, Breton, Bellmer, et al very highly recommended if you re into surrealism and or psychoanalysis
