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

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.


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