New into the Collection: 2 Teasers and a Catalogue

After another long absence, I return with some very rare ephemera from the Paris Olympia Press. Listed here only briefly, I will post more detailed descriptions if there is any interest.

I shall in the coming days post some more illustrated erotica, in particular some material from the now defunct Erotic Print Society.

I am still considering letting my Olympia Press collection go to a new home, but in the mean time I continue to seek the few missing items.


The New Paris Teaser



The New Stripteaser



Olympia Press Catalogue 1960


The above items are all rare, but none so rare as the New Stripteaser, no copy has ever been  in any of the major collections, and at the time the last bibliography as released, it was only identified as having been mentioned in a catalogue.

The Burroughs 1960 catalogue, is now  a rarity because of the Burroughs connection.

I am still seeking 2 Teasers, “The Paris Teaser” and “Paris Exotique”, the English and French versions of the same publication.
