This Book

Second listing for me of books in this small series, but this title was,  I believe the first of the illustrated flagellation novels produced by this author. this one is complete, and reveals in its print details that it was run off by the same press that was producing books for the Vidal imprints including titles produced by Jim Galding and J  Van Styk, which had a very similar extreme style.

Books for Sale: Jean Vergerie, Tortures et lubricité, Collection de l’Églantine, Paris, n.d. (1935)

This Book

Introducing a short series of extremely rare flagellation novels from France in the 1930’s. Collection de l’Églantine, was  a very extreme player in the flagellation market, producing only 8 titles between 1935 and 1938, seven of these penned by Jean Vergerie, with illustrations by Chang Sao or Sadie-Mazo. Any information about this publisher would be most welcome as would scans of any of the illustrations that are missing from the titles in my collection.

Title Page

Rebound in in red cloth over marbled boards, original covers absent, 237 pages, judging by other titles in my collection this volume may have been cropped, as have the illustrations, It is difficult to ascertain how many illustrations were typical and I am aware that some of the later titles had a colour cover illustration. This title has 7 illustrations credited to Lany-R and Sang Chao. Text is complete and overall condition is very good.
