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.

Taped at head and tail of spine covers generally grubby but Complete.

Unsure whether the colour illustration was part of a dust-wrapper, or as was sometimes the case, pasted over the front cover, or otherwise just tipped in as a frontispiece.

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.

Something of an oddity, but nevertheless an interesting edition of this title originally published in 1882(3), this 1923 clandestine edition, is accompanied by a suite of 16 illustrations specific to this edition by Nicolas Sternberg, and a selection of illustrations from earlier editions, 5 by Van Maele, from the Carrington edition of 1908, a frontispiece by Rops from the 1921 edition and 5 by Bayros, from a source  I cannot identify. This book differs from other copies in that the illustrations are hand coloured. Altogether a rare and interesting edition of this erotica.

This Book


Another clandestine publication, by Maurice Duflou, this a reissue of the original edition, of Gamiani. despite being referred to as mono, in the limitation the, illustrations do have some light colouration, another oddity is that all of the 12 facsimile illustrations have significant foxing which does not appear elsewhere in the text. I cannot explain this. This copy is enhanced with 2 extra illustrations , one in colour and the other in pencil and lightly hand coloured, with a signature that I cannot identify. As usual I have presented the illustrations in the order they appear in the book.

This Book

This tiny book, is a bibliographic mystery, well at least it is to me, as I am unable to locate any reference to it. So as always in these cases I would very much appreciate any information that anyone can offer. The illustrations that accompany the book are delightful, and I guess them to be circa 1930. But that is all I have, a guess.

Books for Sale: Claude de Saint-Hieble, L’Instrument des apothicaires, (Collection des amis du bon vieux temps) Jean Fort. Paris n.d. 1920. illustrated by Martin Van Maele.

This Book

A very odd listing, on a site where odd is the norm. This one is a collection of extracts from various texts throughout French history that have featured the enema as a fetishist device. It is not unusual for the enema  to appear in flagellation novels, but it appears that it has a long and distinguished (or should that be disgusting?) history. This places it more in the Curiosa/ Fetish category than mainstream erotica. I have a significant number of publications by Liseux and Carrington , that explore classical erotic texts and curious bypaths of deviance. It is not unusual to find anti-clerical  and anti- royalist texts, but in the world of erotica nothing is sacred, and this rather delightful tome takes a swipe at the bizarre practices of the medical profession throughout history. So by all means stand and applaud for the medics, but be careful when you bend over.

Bibliographical information.

On the Internet, several sites present this book as a pornographic work of Pierre Mac Orlan devoted to klysmaphilia. The defenders of this refreshing, but not very common practice will be disappointed. In reality, Mac Orlan wrote only a few pages to introduce an anthology of old texts devoted to the clystère. This is a true work of scholarship on a little explored subject, so much so that L’Instrument des Apothicaires is found on the shelves of several libraries of medicine. Nevertheless, the intention of the author is clear: this is frankly a broad joke, which he clearly indicates in his preface: “Nous avons fait en quelque sorte une anthologie, un livre d’or du clystère, à travers cinq siècles de badinage et d’humour, et c’est, je crois, dans le coin des humoristes qu’il convient de placer cet ouvrage sur les rayons de toute bibliothèque.” (We have to some extent made an anthology, a book on the clystère, through five centuries of banter and humour, and it is, I believe, in the corner of the humorists whom it is advisable to place this work on the shelves of any library.) For the discourse of this particular subject, Pierre Mac Orlan chose an original pseudonym, but completely fitting since the sureau hièble (Sambucus ebulus ) is a plant of which the leaves and the roots are purgative and sudorific. On rapprochera cet emprunt à la pharmacopée du Docteur Fowler de Maisons de flagellation.
