I must admit to having posted these illustrations before, primarily because I was interested in making comparisons between this artist, Marilac and Wighead. At the time I did not have a copy of this book and Christophe Bier was kind enough to send me a set of illustrations. Now I actually have a copy am listing the volume, This title for me represents one of the very best illustrated books in the genre, I still favour Wighead, who although remaining a mystery, provided significantly more material. Marilac despite notes elsewhere claiming him as unknown, is in fact Mario Laboccetta, a respected artist in the 20’s who appears to have had a very brief foray into the world of flagellation. The only other title I am aware of by him in this genre is the cover of another Editions Prima title, Gaston Vicennes, L’Amour Fouetté, which I have previously listed and which is also linked at the bottom of this page.

Yet another departure for me, as this is an odd volume, worthy of recording here because of the rarity of the illustrations. This volume is number 3 of a 4 volume set dated 1797, but actually printed in 1865. Bound in quarter  red leather on mottled boards, 354 pages (9.5 x 14.5 cm), with a frontispiece and 10 full page illustrations by Acier. Any other information on this edition would be most welcome.

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.

Another rare flagellation title, I am not sure whether this title was reissued by Editions Dominique Leroy in the 1970’s, as were many of the other Carlo illustrated titles, but in any case it is worth noting that the illustrations in the original editions are on papier couche, or glossy paper, as a result they are much more vibrant than the reprints where the illustrations were on ordinairy cheap paper stock. This is the original edition and I hope you like the images.

Books for Trade: HUGUES, Clovis: ODE A VENUS. ODE AU VAGIN. Poème inédit. Domrémy, A l’Enseigne de la Pucelle, s.d. (vers 1933) [Paris, Maurice Duflou]

 

 

Yet another stunning example from the golden age of erotica, a clandestine title from Duflou, with input from Perceau. This presented scanning problems, as the book is rebound with original covers bound in, so it was not always possible to get the images flat on the scanner bed, unfortunately there is not much to be done about this.

The book is interesting on a number of counts, as yet again this is a Briffaut publication which appears to have variant editions in the same limitations, in this case my copy has colour illustrations, all other copies I have traced have the illustrations in black only, I had a similar experience with my Briffaut copy of L’Anti Justine.

The most interesting point for me however is the anonymous illustrator of this title, which I believe to be the mysterious “Wighead”, I would welcome any comments on this possibility.

And for those among you that have an interest in books rather than just images, this copy has some damp staining in the guttering, and I would welcome any information on the possibility of treating this.

HUGUES, Clovis: ODE A VENUS. ODE AU VAGIN. Poème inédit.Domrémy,

A l’Enseigne de la Pucelle, s.d. (vers 1933) [Paris, Maurice Duflou]

1 volume in-8 (22 x 16.5 cm), paperback, 69- (1) pages. 10 photo-gravures inset in colour. Cream cover printed in red and black with two initials for the letters Q and V. The cover modestly bears the title Ode to Venus while the title page clearly indicates Ode to Vagina. Rebound copy with original covers bound in.

This volume contains a note on the author signed Jean Tiretta, the facsimile of the last page of the manuscript signed Klau-Vizuq, the Ode to Vagina, a notice on the Ode to Piron Priory by Helpey (Louis Perceau) , Ode to Priapus and The Seven Beatitudes.

With regard to Clovis Hugues (1851-1907), Aristide Briand wrote: “There were in him Beranger, Camille Desmoulins and Tartarin of Tarascon”. In other words: communard, freemason, socialist, poet; it was all this in turn and at once. The Ode to the Vagina dates from 1906. One knows nothing about the illustrator of this beautiful edition out of the presses of Maurice Duflou.Reference: Dutel, Bibliography of erotic works published clandestinely in French between 1920 and 1970, no. 2078.

The Select-Bibliothèque was one of several publishing houses specializing in fetish material that flourished in Paris during the first half of the twentieth century. Like the others, notably Jean Fort’s ‘Orties Blanches’ series and the ‘Librairie Artistique et Editions Parisiennes Reunies’ of Paul Brenet, the books of the Select Bibliothèque were published openly. Occasionally a title would cross some mysterious line and be prosecuted, but in general, since there was no sex in the conventional sense, these publishers were left to their devices by the authorities.

Despite the openness of these books, the publisher of the Select Bibliothèque remains unknown, at least to this cataloguer. Paul Jérôme writes of Don Brennus Aléra as being “un (ou plusieurs) des pourvoyeurs de l’editeur parisien Massy…” (Dictionnaire des œuvres érotiques, Paris: Mercure de France, 1971, p. 484). In fact, Massy was where the earliest books in the series were published. The almost anagramitic similarity of the names of the authors of most of the books – Bernard Valonnes, Don Brennus Aléra, Roland Brevannes – suggests a single hand at work, and one that spanned in excess of 30 years. And it might not be unreasonable to think that the author was also the publisher.

The numbered titles in the series were in a small 8vo – closer to 16mo – format, and began publication in 1907. However, there were also a handful of earlier titles, in a larger octavo format and on better paper, which were not numbered. I’ve only seen one of these [in a private collection in Hamburg]. These were also published circa 1907. It is probable that the unnumbered titles, being on better paper, proved to be uneconomical prompting the publisher to change to a smaller format and cheaper paper soon thereafter. Note also that only of a few of the Select Bibliothèque titles went into second printings, and so the Catalogues or ‘Tarifs’ which appeared in the front of each volume are usually incomplete, some titles being missing. I’ve only ever seen one title that the Select Bibliothèque itself reprinted, and that too was in Hamburg.

There were three different illustrators. The first of these was ‘Tack’, who was a better artist than his successors, but old fashioned. The others were ‘Esbey’ and ‘Selby’, who were rather naïve but who had better imaginations than ‘Tack’. It is Interesting that this series is so cohesive in concept and production, from 1907 through 1939 when it probably ceased.

 

. The details given are of the originals, I have no idea when the facsimiles were produced.
