Previously only listed only in brief, but here for your enjoyment with all the illustrations, superbly executed (no pun), by Herric:- (Chéri Hérouard)
This title is available for trade my Paris Olympia Press wants.
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
Walter Flog, Éditions Prima, (1932) Cover and 12 superb engraved plates by Herric.
252 pages. Printed by Imprimerie Tessier, Romainville 32 Rue de Paris
This copy bound in contemporary quarter leather on marbled boards, original covers preserved. Full description of condition and extra images on request.
At the risk of repeating myself, whatever ones view of the subject matter, these are stunningly beautiful illustrations, with all the subjects more feminine than masculine, and so Deco, and also Decadent in style.
Any questions or information about the artist, or especially the publisher, please leave a comment or complete a contact form.
