Books For Trade: Special Edition: Editions Prima. Paris 1930’s. Flagellation (Spanking) Novels Illustrated by “Herric” and another?

 Chéri Hérouard (1881-1961) was a French artist and illustrator of numerous erotica and spanking novels. He used the pseudonym Herric when he illustrated spanking novels for various French publishing houses, such as Jean Fort’s Collection des Orties Blanches. And as evidenced by these titles also, Editions Prima.

Yet another accidental off shoot of my collecting activity, I found one of these titles and then set out to locate others, they are rather beautiful things and despite the subject matter, which even some erotic  bibliophiles disapprove of, most were not prosecuted at time of publication and only really became the subject of censorship when reprinted , mainly in the 1950’s

The limited information that I have on these titles comes mainly from descriptions and dating from the Biblio Curiosa web site, or from auction catalogue listings, as always the titles you see here are the real thing and in my private collection, and as such available for trade for items I am seeking for my Paris Olympia Press collection, I must state now that it would take something pretty persuasive for me to part with any of these.

I am keen to find a definitive list of the titles produced by this publisher, I understand from browsing the web that they were quite prolific, however my primary interest is censorship and books that were prosecuted and banned,so any information would be most welcome.

L’Amour Foutte: Gaston Vincennes. Éditions Prima : Paris  In original illustrated covers, with 12 engraved monochrome plates. 246 pages (uncut) plus table of contents. Printed by L’Imprimerie Typographique 9, Rue des Gardes. Paris. (ND) but 1930?.

Artist is credited as CH.Avalanche, no idea who that is but pretty sure its not Chéri Hérouard, although the initials lead to that conclusionWhen I first acquired this title I had trouble getting my head around this cover and that time, it had much more of a sixties feel to it, but it is 1930 or thereabouts and a wonderful and exceedingly rare example. My apologies for the paucity of information but that is what you are there for, fill in the gaps in my knowledge please. Detailed description of condition and other images on request.
