DÉVERGONDAGES.
[ROJAN, illustrator]. SPADDY (pseud. of Jean Gros).

Published by Aux dépens d’un amateur,, Bruxelles [Nice]:1948. Limited Edition of 234 copies on Vélin de Rives, this being copy no. 69, of a total edition of 250. Octavo (9 x 6 3/4 in.). 151, (3, blank) pp., In original white paper wraps, Uncut pages, 16 color lithographed plates, unsigned but, according to Pia and Dutel, after watercolors by Rojan, i.e. Feodor Stepanovich Rojankowsky (1891-1970).s. Rojan, a Russian émigré as celebrated for his many childrens book illustrations as he was for his erotic drawings, won the 1956 Caldecott Medal for his illustrations to John Langstaff’s Frog Went A-Courtin’. He was the sometime lover of French novelist and poet, Raymond Radiguet, and as an eroticist is perhaps best known for his illustrations to Radiguet’s Vers Libres.

Quite a spectacular item, unfortunately impossible to scan because of the binding, so my efforts at photography will have to suffice. I include the binding in this listing because it is a little different.

Many Thanks to Antiquariat Ars Amandi from Berlin who provided the following information.

The edition is a
publication by Kistemakers in Brussel, around 1880. For bibliographical
reference you find it in Dutel, entre 1650 et 1880, in the appendix, no.

Best to you,

This one is for the bibliophiles (no illustrations), I am trying to identify the publisher and date. A previous owner has penciled in c 1900 on the ffep. Other than that there is nothing to indicate date, publisher or printer. It is a lovely little book nicely printed on good quality paper, bound in quarter green leather on marbled boards. Limited edition of 75 copies,11 x 16 c.m. 254 pp, with 2 page catalogue of other titles. The books listed are all very small print runs, and the heading Bibliotheque pour les curieux, does not offer any hits.

The only clue appears to be the printer or publishers device on the Title Page ÉTERNITÉ, under which is a small image of a winged helmet.

Books for Trade: Anon ,The English Academy, Mihaly Von Zichy, The Erotic Print Society 2000.

This is by far the most recent publication I have ever listed on this blog, however as recent as the story “The English Academy ” may be, the sumptuous illustrations are from the end of the 1800’s not the 1900’s. The text claims to be from a hand written (in French) manuscript found in a box of of such material, found somewhere in France and eventually translated into English, the text apparently matches the beautiful illustrations it appears with. Whatever the truth of this tale, it gives me an excuse to post the images, and I hope you like them.

Books For Trade (Facsimilie)MOI, POUPÉE. Texte et eaux-fortes d’une Jeune fille à la page.A l’enseigne “des petites vertus”, s.d. (1930). [Maurice Duflou, Darantière imprimeur] –

Before anyone gets too carried away, this is a facsimilie, here because I dont expect ever to have the original, and it allows me to share the images, which in this case, consist of some of the original illustrations supplemented by  hand retouched (badly) colour pornographic photographs. This  item, although a lump of a book, with individual taped in page sections, with copied text pasted in, is somehow quite an appealing object in its own right, and as close as I (or you) are ever likely to get to the original.

I have shamelessly stolen the text of an old book sellers description as the only useful bibliographical information I can find, please bear in mind that it does not describe my copy which has no mention of any publisher or place, and appears to be a partial text ending on page number 75, apparently mid-sentence. Still as usual I am sharing this because I like it. I have done my best with the image scans, and mine are a slight improvement on the ones in the book.

One more thing, I have seen copies of this for sale that look very much like my copy, but purporting to be original, also referencing Rojan as the illustrator, i am happy to say that if they are talking about the same illustrations as this volume, they are not the work of Rojan. My copy  has age and is clearly a facsimilie, I believe of a pirate copy of the original title, anyone with any comments or information please utilise a  contact form.

 

 (DESCRIPTION OF THE ORIGINAL)

Johannes GROS, aussi un temps attribué à Renée DUNAN] – P. BELOTTI, illustrateur (?)
MOI, POUPÉE. Texte et eaux-fortes d’une Jeune fille à la page.
A l’enseigne “des petites vertus”, s.d. (1930). [Maurice Duflou, Darantière imprimeur] – 
Clandestine erotic published by Maurice Duflou and illustrated 9 beautiful free etchings attributed to P. Belotti. Rarity among rarities! [Johannes GROS, also a time attributed to Renée DUNAN] – P. BELOTTI, illustrator (?) ME, DOLL. Text and etchings of a girl on the page. At the sign “small virtues”, nd (1930). [Maurice Duflou, Darantière printer] 1 volume in-8 (19.5 x 14.5 cm), paperback, 255- (1) pages. 1 etching in frontispiece and 8 etchings inset. Good copy as published. Some slight foxing in places. Solid broaching. Gray-blue paper cover printed in pink-red on the first dish (title and floret), on the back we read the title ” Neither Dutel (who simply quotes them) nor the other bibliographers (Alexandrian, Pauvert, Kearney) evoke the illustrations that adorn this volume. We believe we recognize as author of these pretty free etchings P. BELOTTI who illustrated at the same time several erotic works published clandestinely (Jacinthe or the images of sin). Reference: Dutel, 2003 – Volume that was missing from the main collections of clandestine erotic books (Nordmann, etc.)

Books for Trade: Lord Drialys, [Jean de Villiot], Clic ! Clac ! Précédé d’un conte “Home-Discipline”, Librairie des Bibliophiles Parisiens [ Charles Carrington ],Paris, 1907

That very rare ocurence on this site, a book without illustrations!, this one is here because I really like it, and I have long been a fan of the publications of Charles Carrington and especially the clandestine titles. Despite the lack of illustrations, (it was never issued as an illustrated edition), it is exceedingly rare and of interest to the serious erotic bibliophile.
