Jean Fort was a prolific producer of erotica, under a variety of imprints, his Collection des Orties Blanches (White Nettles), was specifically dedicated to sado- masochistic story lines. Fort produced a very large number of titles under this imprint, between 1920-1939, illustrated by various artists, the title on offer here was by a lesser artist who for me falls into the category “amateur”.


As with other imprints many of these titles were reprinted in the 1970 and 1980’s. Also curious to note was that this particular title was prosecuted in 1951, and subsequently lost appeals against the decision in 1953 and 1954. Given that the reprint did not appear until 1975, I am curious as to how it came to court in the 1950’s, some 20 years after the original publication, is there I wonder another reissue in the 1950’s not recorded?.


This original title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
