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, this by Jim Black pseudonym for Luc Lafnet.
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 in1953 and condemned in 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.
Something of a lesson in this title which was an e-bay purchase, advertised as having the 12 illustrations called for, but in actuality only having 10 which are displayed here, it is always best when buying any illustrated book especially on eBay and from France to confirm that all the illustrations are present.
This original title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
