This list will provide a bridge between the French 1950’s material and a small number of earlier French erotica items that I have, mainly clandestine but also some items that were openly published. As always all titles are available to trade against my Paris Olympia wants or other interesting items of erotica that might enhance the site. Please feel free to ask any questions or contribute any bibliographical information that would improve the listings.
