Previously only listed only in brief, but here for your enjoyment with all the illustrations, superbly executed, by Herric:- (Chéri Hérouard)
This title is available for trade my Paris Olympia Press wants.
NOTE: The decorations at the head and tail , and between images are not from this book, everything else is.
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

.Jean Martinet. Éditions Prima. Paris.255 pages, Cover and 12 exquisite monochrome engraved plates by Herric. ND. No Print details but C 1938? so likely Tessier. Prosecuted in 1953, banned in 1954.
