Truly worthy of the title “You don’t see many of those about nowadays”, a scarce and fragile, printed on tissue thin paper, but with Carrington’s usual flair for the ostentatious, decorated with cul-de lamps, 8 page (inc covers) side stapled pamphlet.
Advertising: Au-Dela des Portes, by E Stuart Phelps, with a 5 page prospectus of this title, followed by the imitation and price for this title, and on the back page an advertisement for “Le Pharaon”, “Pan Michael”, and amazingly to both myself and Patrick Kearney “Ben-Hur”. The last resulted in a very strange series of communications between myself and Pat about the American Gun Lobby, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Munroe and the Olympia Press, You had to be there.
For you Charles Carrington Collectors out there I would happily accept an item of Paris Olympia Press ephemera in exchange for this little gem also watch these pages for Carrington titles in the coming days. And for you picture hunters who wonder what the big deal is, see if you can find another one.
