After another long absence, I return with some very rare ephemera from the Paris Olympia Press. Listed here only briefly, I will post more detailed descriptions if there is any interest.
I shall in the coming days post some more illustrated erotica, in particular some material from the now defunct Erotic Print Society.
I am still considering letting my Olympia Press collection go to a new home, but in the mean time I continue to seek the few missing items.
The New Paris Teaser
The New Stripteaser
Olympia Press Catalogue 1960
The above items are all rare, but none so rare as the New Stripteaser, no copy has ever been in any of the major collections, and at the time the last bibliography as released, it was only identified as having been mentioned in a catalogue.
The Burroughs 1960 catalogue, is now a rarity because of the Burroughs connection.
I am still seeking 2 Teasers, “The Paris Teaser” and “Paris Exotique”, the English and French versions of the same publication.

A refreshing attitude to the jacketed Naked Lunch. (and to Bill Burroughs, too.) Do we know how many of Girodias titles were issued with jackets?
ps I have that Olympia flyer (and a price list to go with it… I think… it’s boxed at the moment after a move). A very strange photo that has not be reproduced elsewhere: Bill looking at torn pages from the small ads of a Parisin (?) paper?
Hi Jim, thanks for the message. 10 of the paperbacks (and all of the hardbacks were produced with jackets.
