Another clandestine gem with all the usual trickery and misinformation, even more complicated if you pursue its possible origin under a variety of French editions, This copy despite its fake publication date of 1902 (1935) is still a rare and interesting item, with illustrated endpapers and five full page illustrations by Le Roy. Making this one of those rare items of English Erotica with illustrations.
This book is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press Wants or other rare books or items of erotic ephemera that would enhance my listings
