A very rare clandestine publication from Jean Fort, something of a bibliographical mystery, and not much information out there, I am unable to locate a copy in any library, or any history of this title being auctioned. It may simply be that I do not have adequate reference material, but I am asking for any information anyone has about this title. This edition is a great rarity and even more so with a suite of 16 original illustrations. It is likely that the illustrations are “extra” to the book and may have been commissioned by the original owner, they appear contemporary with the book. Cannot establish this for certain unless another copy turns up with these illustrations.
The appears to be some surface debate about which came first, this edition provisionally dated 1911, although it is not actually dated at all, despite someone having penciled 1911 at the foot of the title page, or the clandestine Carrington English edition dated 1910, which claims to have been translated from the French.
This French edition makes no similar claim to have been translated from the English, so given the confusion (deliberate) created by clandestine publishers, the debate about the chronology may simply be a matter of bibliographers pride.
I hope to be able to provide an update soon, in the meantime enjoy this rarity.

About the translator, the catalog of the Kinsey Institute indicates: “Identification of translator with Moses William Stainton, who used the same pseudonym is uncertain.”
Another oddity, purchased blind from a dubious web site, however turns out to be quite an interesting item. It is an original edition, lacking a title page, but with 11 of the 12 illustrations hand coloured. I rather like it and I hope you do.
