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.

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

Well this was very nearly impossible, despite my invention; the BBDSM featured in my last post, because of a combination of my disability and the tightness of the binding, it was not possible to obtain flattened images, so this listing is one of my less satisfying.

If there is enough interest I will attempt to do it again but my images do not do the illustrations justice,

[CARLO]. DESERGY, René-Michel. Les Tyrans passionnels. Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies, 1935. Rebound in quarter black leather, on speckled boards, spine with 6 raised bands inter-spaced with gilt decorations , title and author in gilt lettering, Original covers not preserved (25,2 x 17 cm)  266 pages. Contains the frontispiece and 11 other illustrations, (lacks 1 illustration) which I have been able to provide an image of below. There is some wear to the open edge of the boards, and some aging to pages, the illustrations have finger marks  on page edges (outside of the illustrations), overall good +

This is a very rare title and worth having the image pages at least professionally cleaned. This title, is in a larger format and printed on high quality paper, than any of the other titles in this series,  the illustrations were inspired by photographic models,and the frontispiece is an example of  the style of Carlo’s other pseudonym “Charleno”.

I wish I could tell you more, but there is not a lot of information out there, perhaps someone could contribute more information.  I suggest that those of you who read French, should obtain a copy of”Carlo” by  Robert Merodack’,  published by Editions Dominique Leroy 1984,  which offers an affordable access to a large number of Carlo illustrations. This volume confirms a frontispiece and 12 illustrations is correct for “Les Tyrans passionnels”.

Again my apologies for the quality of the images.

Untypical of this illustrator, who normally creates in the extreme bizarre illustrations.However his work is highly collectible and very rare, and I am unable to find a listing for this title anywhere. So i hope you enjoy having sight of this rare item.
