Donovan Kipps. Seuls mémoires authentiques sur la flagellation des esclaves avant la guerre de Sécession, la discipline dans la vie passionnelle des colons sudistes et les sévices exercés contre les femmes blanches du Nord antiesclavagistes. Traduit de l’anglais pour la première fois par Augustin Sarcel. Illustrations de Louis Malteste. Paris: Collection des Orties blanches, (1917).8vo. 217pp. Printed by Bussière. 7 engravings by Louis Malteste.
The author has been falsely attributed to Hugues Rebell [Georges Grassal]. It has been suggested that the author is Hector France [Mendes: 160-A]. Dolly Morton appears to have been first published in English by Charles Carrington in 1899. A French adaptation was also published by Carrington in 1901 as “En Virginie”. See also a 1904 edition published by Carrington with engravings by G. Dola.
There appears to be some confusion regarding the publication date, I have 2 sources 1.Eroticabibliophile Malteste checklist. and also Pat Kearneys Scissors and Paste. Orties Blanches PDF. Which give 1917 as the date for this edition, whereas Bibliocuriosa gives 1927 for the publication date of both this Dolly Morton and The Memoirs of Dolly Morton:-Bibliocuriosa Orties Blanches
I cannot see Both being published in the same year and I suspect a ten year gap may well be correct.
This original title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
