Another late clandestine publication, Peter Mendes in his “Clandestine Erotic Fiction in English” Scolar Press 1993/1998, at index 87 A/B, lists 3 copies, the first with the original title Printed for the Nihilists Moscow, 1881, (possibly published by Brancart) the second with the variant title “My Life’s Adventures” The Erotica Biblion Society 1904, he references a third copy which appears to match the one listed here. The original edition was prosecuted and presumably lead to the change of title in the Erotica Biblion edition.
This copy is embellished with three engraved erotic illustrations that look to me to have come from an earlier publication if this indeed the 1925, edition, Mendes does speculate about an unseen edition which might have served as the master for this copy which probably originated with J.Berge, in Rotterdam c 1902-1905.
This title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
Pleased to have found two very small printers devices in this copy that serve with the title as decorations to this page, the floral banner between the images does not come from this book.
Any questions or information about this title please leave a comment or complete a contact form
