Books for Trade. Sylvestre de Ruan: Spanked in bed. with, Marie Gwynn: The Whippers a strange document of flagellation. Privately Printed n.d. (1925?)

A very curious volume, two titles bound in one, but originally I believe separate books, this is supported by the fact that both are printed on good quality watermarked paper, but with different watermarks, for “Spanked in Bed”the paper is watermarked ” Mopaco Text” and for “The Whippers” the watermark is “COVENTRY BOOK”. I cannot locate another copy of “Spanked in Bed” and the 1925 publication date comes from the dealer I purchased it from. There is another current listing for “The Whippers” which dates it as 1911, but makes no reference to illustrations, the ones in my copy could of course be a later addition, as they are on plain paper with no watermark. However given the the style of the illustrations the 1920’s appear to be the right period. Oh, the joy of clandestine erotica, this one is unusual in that it appears to have cover even if nicely executed , which appears to be a home made creation, the quality of the paper and print, contradicts this, and the illustrations are a bit of a hotch-potch. Both volumes are contained in a Leather binding with original front and back cover preserved, the back cover carries a small label with the legend SELECT EDITIONS CO, 41 Union Square W New. York. I suspect that this may have been a retailer rather than the publisher , but I could be wrong.


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