Books for Trade: GAMIANI , edite par une groupe des bibliophiles [S.I., n.p., n.d. c.1948].?

 GAMIANI , [S.I., n.p., n.d. c.1948]._0001


By far my most ambitious listing, this stunningly beautiful edition of Gamiani, is a late clandestine publication, for which I can find very little bibliographical  information, the only reference which I can locate, is from The eroticabibliophile, which offers the description below, which although I am certain describes another copy of the same book, is wrong in other details:-

In-4. 130pp. Limited edition of 325 of which 25 are for collaborateurs. Chemise cover. Calligraphic text. 32 lithographs in text + 14 plates in black and blood-red.A bookseller notes of his copy (which may be 1 of the 25) “9 full page single sheet illustrations loosely placed in folder with female figure in acetate-covered inset front cover. Also laid in is envelope containing another 18 single sheet full page images, two foldout and some duplicating those that accompany text.” (Johnnycake Books, 03/07/05) (Dutel: 1656)

As you can see from the limitations page below, it appears that the entire run is 300 plus 25 copies Examplaire d’Artiste,of which this copy is number 17. This volume is complete in Folio with 150 pages, uncut in leaves, text in calligraphy, with 12 full page illustrations in colour, plus 32 illustrations in text in a mixture of bistre and black. In addition there is an additional suite, of the original 12 illustrations with artists embellishments, contained in an illustrated gate-fold, featuring the main characters. Extra addition is a suite Tres Libre of 12 full page illustrations also in an illustrated gate-fold.


I will publish this in stages as this is a large piece of work, below is stage one which is the bulk of the book with the standard illustrations.
