A late clandestine production of the famous Sonnets by Pietro Arentino. Rather an odd thing, oblong shape and in sheets with the illustrations tipped in, the text portion is printed on Papier d’Auvergne a la Cuve. and has some foxing pages are not numbered, there is a frontispiece (shown above) a 5 page introduction about “Aretin”, and the 16 sonnets. Unfortunately there are only 15 plates, so one missing, but a fun thing to share anyway. If anyone has a copy of the missing illustration perhaps they might like to contribute a copy to complete the listing.

This is a strange pseudo-scientific flagellation item from the 1930’s, it is in very nice condition and oddly illustrated from various sources. I am not entirely sure of the connection between the images and the text, because some of the scenes appear to depict murder, but as i have no intention of reading it, I will never know.

Books clearance on eBay weekly update: Week Commencing 29th February

 Hopefully this will link you to my current batch of eBay listings. .

As part of my New Years resolution, I am clearing out books that I do not want, in part to make more space for other books, but also to raise my budget for older titles to list on the site. To this end I am listing some items on eBay. Only a small number will have appeared on this site, and these consist mainly of my Olympia Press duplicates , which very few of my visitors take any notice of because they do not have pictures , only words.

As my Paris Olympia Press collection is nearly complete , it is time to clear out all the duplicates and there are around 200 of them using valuable shelf space, so time for them to go. Please be aware that many of these books are worn and used, they are mainly from the very early years of my collecting and were the first copies I could locate, and as with all serious collections, they have been upgraded and replaced over the years. Despite condition they are mostly very hard to find and the listed copies represent a good opportunity to start a collection without breaking the bank. The descriptions are honest and books realistically priced.

Most of  the other items I am listing on eBay, would not appear on this site, either because they are too new, or I am not sure quite what they are. But occasionally I list some real rarities.

So take a look

Books Wanted: Springtime in Paris

Books for Trade: Your Assistance Required.

As part of my clear out campaign, I discovered this group of erotic woodcuts, tucked away in a cupboard, I have had them for many years, and would like some help to identify what they are from and hopefully who the artist might be. I am fairly confident that they relate to a text, as each image has a title in pencil below it. If you click to enlarge you can see the name on each image. The text is French. These 14 woodcuts are beautifully executed, two have an image on the reverse, one appears to be an early draft of the woodcut on the verso  and the other unrelated, for the reverse image and also a small stamp mark that appears on the back of one image I have darkened the exposure to make it clearer. 12 of the images are on a parchment type material, the other  2 on a thick card.

Books for Trade: LE LIBERTINAGE du RETROUSSE; G. Donville (text) and Cheri Hérouard (illustrations) Published by Aux Galants Passe-temps, 1937

A fragile item purchased cheaply on eBay, worth the money for the illustrations alone, strictly speaking not a flagellation novel but an erotic Lesbian romance, beautifully illustrated by Herric with images of gorgeous girls attired in ribbons and lace and silken underclothes.

In original printed paper wraps (red and black), over plain card covers. Number 733 of a limited edition of 2000 copies, adorned with 16 heliogravures by “Herric” Cheri Hérouard. 252 pp.

Aux Galants Passe-temps, 1937. Couverture rigide rempliee.Edition originale. Grand in-8 de 16,5 cms  x 25,5 cms, relié, 252pages. Illustré et complet de ses 16 hors-texte en héliogravure par Herric [Hérouard]. Edition originale d’un roman érotique publié Aux Galants Passe-Temps ,Jean Fort en 1937. Classique du second rayon libertin, célébrant les amours lesbiennes et les fragrances féminines, contant l’initiation voluptueuse d’une jeune orpheline par sa tante lesbienne. Fétichisme des dessous féminins : jupons, gaines, culottes fendues, jarretières, etc. Hérouard, reconnu pour ses illustrations dans les revues de charme, était le dessinateur idéal de ce roman léger.

 


The illustrations are some of the finest I have seen, and although low on sexual content they are truly erotic as a result, I suspect that the low level spanking content is a (transparent) cover for the Lesbian theme of this book, where from the illustrations at least all participants appear to be young ladies, even though sometimes thinly disguised as young men.


Enjoy the beautiful illustrations.

Books for Trade: Anon; Caresses…or The Intimate Memoires of Jacqueline R. n.p. n.d ( Editions d’Antin? 1937?)

This one potentially is only of interest to me as it has no illustrations, but does belong within the Vidal group, of editions Couvre-Feu at al. Although this title has no publisher, printer or date details, and therefore is effectively a clandestine edition. The French version appears to be one of the more common titles from this publisher, but this the English edition appears quite rare.


This copy has the page preceding the title page cut out, the half title is present, and the person I purchased it from speculated that it might have been an illustration, but as there is no reference to any frontispiece in the French edition I doubt that this is the case. It could of course been the publishers detail and a decision was taken to excise it. If anyone else has a copy of this edition I would be curious to know what the missing page contains.


The bibliographical information below is from “Les éditions du Couvre-Feu”, published by éditions Astarté ,2013 where it can be found on page 150.

NOUS DEUX – simples papiers du tiroir secrets, par Nelly et Jean,

Books for Trade:Bernard Montorgeuil, DRESSUR,Die Gärten der lustvollen Freuden, Volume 3 Editions Bel-Rose Rotterdam.n.d (1970)

Dressur_0002

This being the third book and my fourth post on Montorgeuil, I am sticking with the spelling as it appears on the editions we are viewing.

My interest in Montorgeuil is twofold, first because of the apparent mystery around his identity, and secondly how myth would have us believe that here was someone operating clandestinely , possibly in the 1930’s and providing works exclusively for wealthy collectors. I am not convinced of this story, and certainly there is no published material prior to 1970, when Editions Bel-Rose in Rotterdam produced two identical four volume editions,one in German of the series ” Die Gärten der lustvollen Freuden ” or the French version “Les jardins des delices des supplices”, therse are rather lovely books in limited editions on fine paper, printed on only one side, and in most cases signed.

Having explored the spelling of the name and having established via communication with Camillemm and Christophe Bier, that the spelling as it appears on the Bel-Rose editions both printed and signed, is not typically French either in sound or meaning. The only other progress I have made regarding the name is that it does appear to have a place in the Catalan language, and that there is a rue Montorgeuil in Paris. As interesting as this may be it takes no further forward with who the artist illustrator was and whether or not his work was in circulation prior to 1970.

As i find being provocative quite productive, I want to explore a theory that appears to have some as yet unstated  support, it has been suggested to me that Montorgreuil, (apparently regardless of spelling) is a fake, and interestingly only this week I purchased the last missing title from my Bel-Rose, French editions, from a book-dealer who has gone so far as to state as much, perhaps he has been reading this blog? I will not name him because that would not be fair, however given that I have paid for the book I feel at liberty to quote his description of it.

1 volume 6 feuillets dont 1planche en frontispice et 1faux-titre illustré, puis folioté de 1 à 40 (= 80 pages dont 40 de texte: verso vierge), 2 feuillets; 26 planches dont 1 double. Bon état (pâles rousseurs en tranche de tête). Reproduction en fac-similé du manuscrit autographe de Bernard MONTORGEUIL (souvent orthographié MONTORGUEIL), pseudonyme collectif de W. N. Schors, libraire et éditeur d’ouvrages érotiques, ou d’auteurs restés anonymes (notice B.N.F), illustré de 28 lithographies érotiques (masochisme masculin) de l’auteur. 3è des 4 tomes de la série (après “Les Quat’jeudis” (1er) et “Barbara” (2è), et suivi de “Une Brune piquante”),.tiré à 500 exemplaires; exemplaire justifié n°265, numéroté et signé par l’auteur, bien complet des 28 planches. Livres Reliure éditeur pleine toile verte, titre doré sur le plat et au dos, ornés d’une fleur dorée.

For those who do not read French, the interesting bit is the suggestion that the name Montorgeuil or Montorgueil, is a collective pseudonym fabricated by Schors the publishers of Bel-Rose, I have no idea where the information to support this idea comes from but I must admit that I think it is most likely correct. But how do we verify this?, however it is one thing to fabricate the name, but to go on to fabricate the signature and to sell the books as signed by the author/illustrator, surely that is more than mischief.

Then,  what of the widely circulated information, including auction records that indicate that this Montorgueil, was one of the greatest artists of the genre in the last century, and that his work was clandestinely circulated in the 1930’s and 1950’s, one has to ask under what name?, if the identity was invented in the late 1960’s for publication in 1970, what was the artist called prior to that? and how can anyone have verified the authenticity of the manuscripts and artwork. A bit of a chicken and egg scenario, which came first the artwork or the name? Also a small matter of due diligence requires resolution on the part of the auction house.


Well I am hoping that someone can fill in the gaps and put me right if I am wrong. Because the most important thing is that the artwork although completely twisted is stunning and very funny, I would dearly love to read the text in English. As for the detective work, I guess the biggest part of the puzzle for me now, is who the artist was, as if they really were producing work in the 1930’s they are undoubtedly deceased, whereas if  they did not do the illustrations until the 1960’s they might very well be alive.
