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.
