Books for Trade: J. Van Styk; Les Cruelles Frénésies de Van den Rook; Les Editions du Couvre-Feu, Paris,n.d. [1938]


This title is the original edition of a book I listed earlier this year, in a clandestine Losfeld edition, which is linked at the bottom of this page.This editions has the advantage of having the full set of illustrations, including the rare coloured cover title, which in this copy is tipped in, not mounted. Bibliographical information is taken from the wonderful study “Les Editions du Couvre- Feu”, introduced and edited by Christophe Bier, and published in 2013 by editions Astarte.

J.Van Styk Les Cruelles Frénésies de Van Den Rook, published by Les Editions du Couvre-Feu .n.d. [1938], 189 pages with an illustration in colour and six, full page monochrome illustrations by “Wighead”, misspelt on the title page as “Wigead”, but correct on the outer cover. The Losfeld clandestine reprint , issued as Cruelles Frénésies by J.Styka, was prosecuted in 1960, to the best of my knowledge the original was never subject to prosecution.
