This Book

Strictly speaking, not erotica, but certainly curiosa and having already listed the Carrington English translation, published as “Weird Women”, it seems fair to post this edition, especially as it features a great deal of nudity, composed by an outstanding artist that I have never featured before. Also worth note that this particular book is now live at auction on Catawiki and well worth bidding on.
