Another major player in the 1930’s flagellation market, along with Orties Blanches, were Les Editions Couvre-Feu, followed by Le Jardin d’Eros, distinctly different in that the contents and illustrations were more twisted and aimed at torture and humiliation, unlike the titles issued by Editions Prima, which always seem to have smiling faces , no matter what act of depravity is taking place, the characters in these editions seem to be taking it a bit more seriously.
This title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
This title has a peculiarity in that it appears to have a possible second state pasted on cover illustration, it covers the original illustration, which shows the bare breasted dominatrix, and may have been placed there by the publisher. The new cover illustration is pasted on at the 4 corners, but the original is clearly visible and intact underneath. Both illustrations are very nice so I have provided an alternative of the original for your information.
This Copy: Rebound in blue quarter leather, on marbled boards, with author and title in gilt on spine. Original Cover preserved (see note above), 158 p.p. with cover and 12 unsigned illustrations hors-texte, in black. Imprimerie speciale du Jardin d’Eros, 259 Fauborg St-Martin, Paris
