That very rare ocurence on this site, a book without illustrations!, this one is here because I really like it, and I have long been a fan of the publications of Charles Carrington and especially the clandestine titles. Despite the lack of illustrations, (it was never issued as an illustrated edition), it is exceedingly rare and of interest to the serious erotic bibliophile.
