Unusual for me, but this time not a clandestine publication, rather an openly published title on the theme of flagellation, such titles were seldom if ever banned and although produced by the premier pornographer Charles Carrington, the print and publication details of these books did not require concealment. Carrington produced huge numbers of very expensive books, ranging from reprints of classic “Galants” to pseudo scientific sex books and pseudo historical and even the works of Oscar Wilde. Most of Carrington’s openly published titles were lavish productions on expensive paper and in limited editions, such as the title here, which is rather wonderfully illustrated by Leon Roze. It has the added luxury of supplying all of its own decorations for my listing.
This title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
