Books for Trade: Anon: The Modern Eveline, Or the adventures of a young lady of quality who was never found out. PARIS (New York), Printed For Distribution Amongst Private Subscribers 1904 (1930’s)

Eveline_0012

First American Edition. Turn of the 20th century erotic adaptation by notorious publisher Charles Carrington of a ca.1840 galante novel, Evelina, that, according to Mendes, was explicitly sexed-up by one of Carrington’s staff hacks; most definitely not by John S. Farmer, as some have surmised. The edition under notice, containing the full text to the Carrington three-volume edition, was issued in the early 1930s by the Miller Brothers who were part of New York City’s clandestine erotica scene along with Sam Roth, Esar Levine, and Ben Rebhuhn. The illustrations to this edition possess a stylish vintage charm. Kinsey Library 823.7 E93 1900. Cf. Mendes 161. Cf. Straight, Erotica Bibliophile Carrington Checklist 168. 2 vols, 8vo, 322, 222pp, 10 b&w explicit plates.


Any bibliographical information would be gratefully received.

Books for Trade: Janine Peyrin: Luxure et Souffrance, Roman de Mouers. Clandestine Publication n.p n.d (1950)

Luxure_0012

Back to detailing some of my 1950’s clandestine titles, most of which, are illustrated, sadly the quality of many of the illustrations is poor, with no real artistic merit, this applies to many of the clandestine Losfeld titles, as well as some others, like this title which are apparently not Losfeld productions. Some titles already listed such as the three “Flores” productions, are clearly intended to have a cartoon like quality, which I think is their saving grace. Many of the others are just poorly executed, and I am listing them primarily because they are rare and no one else is going to do it.

Painful Pleasures

In somewhat better condition than my previous title,but ,still fragile however a much better production than that of  “Modern Slaves”,this title was also reissued under the Delectus Books imprint in 1995, and copies of that are readily available. This title also has a credited artist in Francis Heuber, and the claim to eighteen illustrations given on the title page only tallies if you include the decorative head and tail piece illustrations. So with ten full page illustrations and eight decorative illustrations here for your enjoyment is the original of Painful Pleasures.

Books for Trade: Claire Willows: Modern Slaves a Profound Study in the Forces of Destiny, Issued Privately for Collectors n.p. (USA) 1931

willows_0003

To say this book is fragile is something of an understatement, the boards are becoming detached but the contents are OK, fortunately this title was reissued under the Delectus Books imprint in 1995, and copies of that are readily available. Originals are harder to come by, but make for an interesting comparison against their French counterparts. Curiously the whole genre of flagellation novels is generally accepted under the heading Le Vice Anglais, strange then that so few appear to have been produced in English and so many in French, where nearly all the protagonists have English names and  titles.

IMG_0008

This is an unusually late edition for me, undated, but close to 1980, judging by other titles issued by this press. This title and its illustrations are exceedingly rare, in the original French edition, published in 1934 by Éditions du Couvre-Feu. As well as the present edition which I have only ever seen the copy listed here.


Listed here for your enjoyment with the cover illustration in colour and 5 full page illustrations in monochrome, all by the incomparable Wighead. The author Jim Galding remains unidentified.

Books for Trade: Jacques D’Icy: Monsieur Paulette et ses épouses. Recueil véridique et documenté d’incursions à Montmartre dans un certain monde où la flagellation est hautement en honneur illustrated by Louis Malteste, Orties Blanches Paris 1922

IMG_0002

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 the wonderful Louis Malteste. Who in this instance appears to have been the author as well as the illustrator.


Something of a lesson in this title which was an e-bay purchase, advertised as having the 21 illustrations called for, but in actuality only having 16 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.

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 1970’s, I am curious as to how it came to court in the 1950’s, some 20 years after the original publication.
