Books for Trade:Bernard Montorgeuil, Vier Donnerstage Editions Bel-Rose Rotterdam.n.d (1970)

Montorgruiel Vier Donnerstage Bel-Rose 1970

For reasons I do not really understand myself, much of my recent collecting activity has been driven by éditions Astarté, and Christophe Bier, the first being the publisher and  the second Author come editor, of first the “Les Editions Couvre-Feu” bibliographical study, and now various books about or by Bernard Montorgeuil.

My interest in Montorgeuil is twofold, first because of the apparent mystery around his identity, and secondly how myth would have us believe that here was someone operating clandestinely , possibly in the 1930’s and providing works exclusively for wealthy collectors. I am not convinced of this story, and certainly there is no published material prior to 1970, when Editions Bel-Rose in Rotterdam produced two identical four volume editions,one in German of the series ” Die Gärten der lustvollen Freuden ” or the French version “Les jardins des delices des supplices”, therse are rather lovely books in limited editions on fine paper, printed on only one side, and in most cases signed.

So this post is the first in a series about the mysterious Montorgeuil, by no means unique, because there are a number of blogs dedicated to this author. I shall of course as always post the illustrations, but my theme is really around the books, and I would be very interested to have any contribution that evidences Montorgeuil, prior to 1970, and especially interested for any information regarding “Sinistre Editions S.A”, a Publisher who apparently published the series in English in the 1980’s.

Post Update: Anon;Florilèges de la volupté ou Les Voluptés d’une vicieuse.1955 Losfeld

In my recent post regarding this title I complained, about the quality of the images in the book, and the attendant difficulties with scanning and improving the images. I asked if anyone knew who the illustrators were. And for once I actually got a response, for the moment I will just list copies of some the colour illustrations that were copied to illustrate the book. At a late date I will update the original listing with the names of the illustrators that have been identified, by a fellow bibliophile who provided the images below and who wishes to remain nameless.

If anyone else has copies of the original images it might be fun to do a comparative listing.

autobiography of a Flea Erotica Biblion 1901_0013

This one previously unlisted, because it is shaped like a small house brick and very difficult to scan, plus I don’t like the images. But it is a clandestine title and it is going to auction, so I best list it while I still have it,I have  never seen another copy. I strongly suspect that the illustrations are copied from a much earlier edition. Ancient pornography with a very strong anti-clerical theme.

Another clandestine Losfeld title this one is loaded with illustrations, as is sometimes the case the quality of the images in the book  is variable and I take some considerable time attempting to enhance and improve the images, of the 61 hors-texte images there are a number that I cannot post, so you will have to do with what I have been able to resolve. This title will be going to auction soon, so if you want to see the rest of the images you could always bid on it.

Clandestine Losfeld and Others Part 2

Advance notice of books going to Auction.

I am currently listing pretty much all the Clandestine Erotica titles in both French and  English, and sending them to auction, they have served their purpose and I have catalogued them in detail and posted them on this site, and now I need to refresh my collection with other material.

Before anyone gets too excited I am not selling the openly published titles such as Couvre-Feu and Orties Blanches etc as I intend to continue collecting them.

And in case anyone is interested I am still looking for a small number of titles for my Paris Olympia Press collection. I am also selling off all my Olympia Press duplicates, look out for links to eBay and Catawiki auctions.

I will post the details of the books and link to the auction site when I have a fixed date.

La Princess Sonja Editions du Couvre-Feu_0006

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.


Another exceedingly rare title, which as you can see from the cover images is very fragile. Christophe Bier, notes in his bibliographical study (referenced below), that the illustrations in this title, by “Kurtys” are imitative of “Carlo”, and not that well done, I quite like them, but they do pale into insignificance compare against “Wighead” and E. Klem”.

The description below is by Christophe Bier, from the marvellous “Les Éditions du Couvre-Feu”, published by editions Astarte in 2013, where it can be found on page 145

After a long break from the 1950’s I am now returning to that decade, to list the last of my clandestine titles from “Losfeld and others”. The last few I have been reluctant to list, because they are either, like this one; incomplete, or I just do not like the illustrations.


Once I have finished listing this group, they will be going to auction, as part of my reinvestment program, to provide funds for other books.


This title is lacking 2 of the promised 10 idées Rose (unless in this edition Mme de V was having a bad day and could only manage 8), it is rebound, with cover preserved. If anyone has copies of the 2 missing illustrations, perhaps they would like to donate copies to complete the listing.


This title is available for exchange against my Paris Olympia Press wants.

Jean Fort was a prolific producer of erotica, under a variety of imprints, his Collection des Orties Blanches (White Nettles), was specifically dedicated to sado- masochistic story lines. Fort produced a very large number of titles under this imprint, between 1920-1939, illustrated by various artists.


This is the one of a short series of listings featuring” Orties Blanches”, titles from the 1930’s which is rapidly evolving into the period of the greatest interest for me, primarily because of the style and content of the illustrations across a wide range of competing publishing houses, and also of the artists themselves and the mystery surrounding the identity of particular individuals. This is different in that the artist has an identity, working under the name “Fontana”, was Leo Fontan, French illustrator. Born September 23, 1884 in Donchery (Ardennes). Died June 26, 1965 in Annecy (Savoie). Painter of genre scenes, portraits, cityscapes, interiors, watercolorist, pasterelliste, decorator. He was a pupil of Luc-Olivier Merson, Léon Bonnat, Fernand Carman. Based in Paris, he regularly exhibited at the Salon of French Artists, of which he was member, and the Comedians Show. He won the Prix Alumni Bonnat in 1936, a silver medal in 1944. He was awarded Chevalier of the Legion of Honor.


I have had to crop down the image for the cover and title page as a flattened image was impossible, because of the binding of the book.

Enjoy the absolutely stunning illustrations.
