Charles Carrington Collection: STORIES FROM THE FOLK-LORE OF RUSSIA.[ALEKSANDER N. AFANASYEV] Done into English by the translator of The book of exposition in the science of coition, The old man young again, and other charming works ejusdem farinae. Paris: Charles Carrington,1897

This Book

Another Carrington from the Michael Neal collection, and a marginal one for this site, as it is bawdy rather than erotic, but a marvellous volume nonetheless. It has the distinction of being in English and being profusely illustrated, Carrington’s published in English often have old plates or engravings, but unlike French editions, rarely have commissioned illustrations, this one is an exception. Like many other Carrington publications it is very hard to find. It also has the distinction of possessing my favourite Cover/Title Page and an outstanding frontispiece.

I must take issue with the bibliographic description as far as the illustrators are concerned, the frontispiece and 6 colour wash illustration are by J.Wely, the majority of the in text illustrations and other page illustrations are signed or initialled by J.Wely and G.D (Georges Dola), a few of the illustrations are unsigned, but I cannot recognise them as Bayros, perhaps someone out there can put me straight on this. The book is complete and there are no missing pages.

STORIES FROM THE FOLK-LORE OF RUSSIA [ALEKSANDER N. AFANASYEV]. Done into English by the translator of The book of exposition in the science of coition, The old man young again, and other charming works ejusdem farinae. Paris: Charles Carrington, 1897.13.97cm. x 21.59cm. xix + 265pp. Limited edition of 500 copies on Van Gelder. Frontispiece done in green, peach and black by J. Wely. 10 plates by Franz von Bayros + 6 plates by J. Wely.

Originally published in Geneva, c.1872 as Russikya zavetniya skazki (Russian Secret Tales) by Aleksandr N. Afanasyev. This was a supplement to Afanasyev’s Narodnye russkie skazki (Popular Russian Tales), 1855-1864. In 1883 a group of folklorists published a yearbook of erotic folklore titled Kryptádia (Secret Things), the first volume being a French translation of Afanasyev’s Russikya zavetniya skazki. Isidore Liseux also translated Afanasyev’s text into French in 1891. That edition being the text Carrington used to translate this present work into English [See Legman: The Horn Book, p.475-476].

Charles Carrington Collection: JACQUES DESCROIX. LA GYNÉCOCRATIE    Ou La Domination de la femme. Précédé d’une Étude sur le masochisme dans l’histoire et les traditions, par Laurent Tailhade. Paris: Charles Carrington, 1902

This Book

A return to my labour of love, which is the cataloguing of The Charles Carrington Collection, this consists of titles from my own collection and those of my good friend Michael Neal. I had promised Michael, before his untimely death last year that I would list all of the titles that I now own, and I have slowly been doing so between forays into titles that I would like to sell on. This one is from the Michael Neal Collection, and according to his provenance was formally in the Leonardt Collection. For most visitors to the site, the primary interest is in the illustrations, this title allows for a great treat because all of the many illustrations are by Martin Van Maele.

JACQUES DESCROIX. LA GYNÉCOCRATIE,  Ou La Domination de la femme. Précédé d’une Étude sur le masochisme dans l’histoire et les traditions, par Laurent Tailhade. Paris: Charles Carrington, 1902.15.88cm. x 24.77. xiv + 317pp. Printed by Bouillant in a limited edition of 750 copies printed on Holland. Frontispiece + 20 illustrations and numerous in-text illustrations by Martin van Maele. Title page in red and black. This Book is rebound in luxury boards, in a slipcase, the remains of the original paper covers are preserved, there is some staining to page edges in places, but never encroaching on text or illustrations.

This is a French translation of Gynecocracy, Adventures and Psychological Experiences of Julian Robinson, published by Leonard Smithers in 1893. This present work retains the flagellation scenes from that original English edition but is expurgated of all the sexual descriptions. This work is thought to have been written by either Stanislas de Rhodes, a London lawyer or possibly by Havelock Ellis, although there is no hard evidence to support either theory. [See Mendes: 84-A]. La Gynécocratie was later published in English by Carrington in c.1912.
