Books for Trade: Octave Mirbeau The Diary of a Lady’s Maid . Paris: Charles Carrington, 1903. illustrations by Emile Mas, engraved by Eugène Dété.

Another Carrington title that doesn’t, qualify as erotica in the strictest sense, it is however, a  great rarity and particularly interesting in its  association context.

Octave Mirbeau (16 February 1848 – 16 February 1917) was a French novelist, art critic, travel writer, pamphleteer, journalist, and playwright, who achieved celebrity in Europe and great success among the public, while still appealing to the literary and artistic avant-garde with highly transgressive novels that explored violence, abuse and psychological detachment. His work has been translated into thirty languages.

His two most noted novels are,  ” Le Jardin des supplices” (Torture Garden (1899) and “Le Journal d’une femme de chambre” (Diary of a Chambermaid) (1900), the present volume is the first English translation of  Le Journal d’une femme de chambre, published by Charles Carrington in 1903 entitled “The Diary of a Lady’s Maid”.

Books for Trade: La Beuque, Jean de: Femmes et Corsaires, Amateur-Biblio, Paris,1931. Illustrations by G. Topfer.

Jean de La Beuque is probably the pseudonym of a French author who published sadomasochistic accounts from 1926 to 1930. The accounts published after 1931 are either re-editions of his texts or an unfinished work, completed by Alan Mac Clyde . The introductions to some publications contain notes from editors or Mac Clyde regarding La Beuque’s illness, recovery and death. Editions of texts published under the name of La Beuque in the 1950s are possibly texts previously published under a different title, unless the editor has contented himself with using the pseudonym of La Beuque for texts of a contemporary author.(some of these are written as La Beucque)

See Link :http://www.bibliocuriosa.com/index.php/La_Beuque,_Jean_de

An interesting theory but more likely is I suspect that Mac Clyde was La Bueque, and killed this pseudonym off, for some reason, he did after all also write as Juana La Paz and Jane Spanking! and goodness knows who else?

Books for trade: VERGERIE, Jean, pseud. – Histoire de Priska. Éditions de la Hippogriffe (Losfeld) [c. 1955]

No one knows today who was behind the pseudonym Jean Vergerie. He is the author of 7 works published by Editions Balland in their Collection Eglantine between 1935 and 1938. The original editions were openly published, unlike this one,  published clandestinely by Eric Losfeld in the mid-1950s. The original editions were also illustrated, and are now pretty much impossible to find. Anyone who has copies of the originals, who would like to donate images, please get in touch via a contact form.

Bibliocuriosa Collection de l’Églantine

These novels are all, without exception, erotic sado-masochistic tales of the worst or the best kind, depending on whether or not to consider Jean Vergerie as the worthy descendant of the Marquis de Sade in the twentieth century. Violence, torture, hellish machinery, monstrous, realistic or fantasized tales, everything is there to make these works the symbols of a literature apart in the production of this period.

Books for Trade: Van Rowel, Désiré, L’Internat des châtiments, Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne Réunies, 1933 illustrated by Carlo

Those of you who follow my blog regularly, may recall my referring to myself as a master of the incomplete. This is because i have to search far as wide to find books that are often unavailable at any price, this means I sometimes buy incomplete items so that I can record their existence,  before they disappear forever. It is true to say that many of these titles may now be available as eBooks, however despite the name they quite simply are not books at all.

The present title is such an example, and as the saying goes ” You cant judge a book by its cover”, that is especially pertinent to this book because it doesn’t have one! Yes sadly the colour illustrated cover is missing, I purchased it as it is with a black and white facsimile of the original cover, because there is not another copy on sale anywhere in the world.  Anything illustrated by Carlo is in high demand and sometimes collectors need to buy what is available, so as to have a copy until a better one  comes  along.  As I do not collect these titles I must take what I can get, which means I can share the result with you. If anyone can provide a  colour scan of the original cover, to enable me to complete the listing  I would be extremely grateful, and give them a mention.

UPDATE 21/03/20

Many thanks to Joe Zinnato of Eros Archives for the colour scan of the cover.

I have waited a long time to list this, I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy from my good friends’ at Libreria Scarpignato in Rome. who agreed that the book is well travelled and worn, and indeed its boards are beaten, almost as though subjected to the kind of thrashing so artfully displayed in its contents, its front cover is taped and it is shaken , perhaps it had forgotten its safe word?  But despite all this it has survived, it has wonderful presence, it has weight and it a delight to hold, printed on heavy gloss paper, and illustrations that are out of this world. and so very rare.

Wighead is my favourite artist of this genre, I have been fortunate enough to have owned a small number of the original titles illustrated by this genius of decadent art who still remains unidentified. This listing is a first draft and I will add blow ups of some of the images a few at a time, this is for my benefit as I am sure the picture vultures will descend and claim the images as their own, and display them without context. This is a book, and in the first instance the images are displayed as they appear in the book, I have cropped some of the smaller images, which I use to act as spacers between, the pages, as anyone who reads any of my editorial commentary  will be aware, I just love a book that provides all the elements for its listing on my blog.

Books for Trade: Lady Impéria, Les Égarements d’un Asservi. No publisher. No date but Editions d’Antin (c 1936)

Another title from the “Vidal” stable of of bookshops and publishers, which was composed of,- Les éditions du Couvre-feu : éditions d’Antin, éditions du Chevet, édition Curio, éditions Georges de Cayla, éditions Idéal, éditions de Minuit, éditions Richepanse & Le Jardin d’Eros.

It appears common for Editions d’Antin titles to be issued as clandestine, some without even printer details, as this copy. The single identifying factor, is the calligraphic motif on all the covers, it could be an L or a Z or even a stylised whip? This publishers or printers mark is sometimes the only way to  link a title to an originator.

As this is not an illustrated title it is relatively easy to list, with only a little research, it is  of interest to the serious erotic bibliophile, because it is a clandestine title that does not appear to have been identified as such in the major bibliographies.  For bibliographic information see. Les éditions du couvre-feu, Christophe Bier, editions Astarte 2013.

I have taken the liberty of attempting to translate the synopsis from the French (Image above), Any mistakes are mine alone and I offer apologies in advance , both to Christophe and anyone taking the trouble to read this.

(The title roughly translates as ” The Errors of a Slave”)

“”The financier Robert Brot-Gillières, bearer of the Legion of Honor, gravitates around the perverse masseuses and the flogging houses. In search of new thrills, he lets himself be manhandled by two ordinary women, Mrs. Voulay and her fifteen-year-old niece. Mathilde, They understand the financial gain they can derive from him, by treating him as a slave. Changed by his masochism, the man becomes extremely unpleasant to his wife. Intrigued by this change of character, Simone, her daughter-in-law, refers to Miss Diana, a professor of physical culture who commences to initiate him into Sapphism and fantasies of flagellation. After having dismissed the two greedy battleaxes, the Professor confuses the masochist by delivering him to two masked flagellants … Simone and her mother! “Unmask” added Madame Brot-Gillières with scathing irony, “the voluptuous Robert will not need to look for sensations elsewhere: he will have his whippers at home!” “
