Books for Trade: Désiré Van Rowel, Joues Cramoisies, Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies, Paris, 1935. Illustrations by Carlo.

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.

Another Fem-dom title from the Vidal empire and a very rare Editions duCouvre-Feu title despite it condition, here the old adage “find another copy” applies.
Dont know how I missed his one i’ve had it for ages, i suspect I may have been reluctant to scan it because of the fragile state of the binding,never mind done now, hope you like it.

Book has been rebound in anonymous grey card covers, the original covers are absent, binding is loose and separating and the poor old thing needs resoration and a rebind. However for our purposes it is more than good enough because the illustrations are all present.

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.

This is an unusually late edition for me, undated, but close to 1980, judging by other titles issued by this press. This title and its illustrations are exceedingly rare, in the original French edition, published in 1936 by Éditions Curio. I did not know that this edition existed but stumbled across it. The original illustrations were in colour and from the appearance of the ones in this edition they were taken from the colour plates , I have played with the exposure of my scans and they are an improvement over the ones in the book.


Listed here for your enjoyment with the cover illustration in colour and 6 full page illustrations in monochrome, all by the incomparable Wighead. The author Jim Galding remains unidentified.


This original title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.

Books for Trade: Diana Slip, Lingeries Libertines, No 1 September 1933. 9 Rue Richepanse Paris

Having stated quite clearly in my past post that I would be henceforth focusing on my Paris Olympia Press collection, unless of course something really interesting comes along, well something did!

This took an age to scan in but it was a pleasure, this extremely rare and rather lovely lingerie catalogue, is the first in Lingeries Libertines series, although I have no idea how many were actually produced. In part this item interests me because of the association, with the Vidal publishing and fashion empire, and in particular connections to editions Couvre-Feu et al. But although I have no idea which images belong to which photographer I know some are Brassai, and therefore there is a link to my Paris Olympia Press collection as Henry Millers ” Quiet days in Clichy” which, although published in 1956, is illustrated with Brassai photographs from the 1930’s.

Before I forget to mention this is an actual magazine in my collection, and it is available for trade against my ever-diminishing Paris Olympia Press wants, so find me some items that can be located under my Books Wanted listings and you could own the real thing.

So here for your enjoyment are the entire contents of this beautiful photographic memoir of the decadent  1930’s, “The Golden Age of Erotica”

Chairs et Dentelles E.Klem a Portfolio of 20 images. Or in this case 5 of the 20.

Continuing my fascination with this artist, I purchased this incomplete set last year on e-bay, happy to do so for the wonderful original lithographs, but also because of the original case for them, which I hoped might contain some evidence of the publisher, alas this was not so. The seller had dated them around 1940, which is too late.

Given the subject matter I suspect that this is work for the Diana Slip lingerie range which places it from between 1933-1938. The publisher may well be one of the Vidal group, but this portfolio does not appear within the bibliography. The artist was producing erotic work for Editions d’Antin, and Diana Slip is named as the author of “Princesse Cravache”, also illustrated by this artist and published by d’Antin.

Eugene Klementieff, was a famous artist/ designer, illustrator who used the signature, E.Klem, or just E.K, or sometimes no signature for his erotic works, however his style is so distinctive that it is not usually too hard to identify his work.

So to the images, sadly only 5 of the 20 called for, they are not uncommon on the web, but are often only reproduced in black and white, therefore I hope you enjoy them in their glorious colour versions. If anyone has images of the other lithographs in the set (colour), I would be very happy to add them to this listing.

Another oddity from , Éditions du Couvre-Feu, this I suspect relates a tale of lesbian love, and from the illustrations alone appears to involve a lot of taking off of clothes , and then well, putting them back on again, then sitting around and chatting. The heroine appears to have gone off of her rather effeminate looking lover, preferring a lusty brunette as her paramour. From the scans it looks as though the images may have been copied from paintings, or at least from a colour version.


My copy appears to vary from the two listed below, as it does not have an illustrated cover. The description as always, taken from Les Éditions du Couvre -Feu, by éditions Astarté 2013. where it appears on page 153

Having, rather rashly declared that I would not be posting anymore of these titles, I found another, and despite the fact that no one other than myself appears to be interested in these books, I have generously decided to share it with you anyway. This is an oddity, looks to be an amateur photographer who has had to use the lottery to find his models, and at one point looks to have been reduced to convincing his Mum to flash her knickers in the back garden.


This is a significant departure from my usual illustrated titles, being a photographic title, this has come about because of my recent interest in a book published by éditions Astarté in 2013, entitled “Les éditions du Couvre-Feu”, which is a wonderfully illustrated bibliography of that imprint and others associated with it. Along with magnificent works illustrated by “Wighead”, and titles by the master of the bizarre  “Jim Galding”, there are a range of fascinating titles mainly on the themes of flagellation and domination, and oddities like this title that are more peep-show than porn.


The brain behind the bibliographical content of “Les éditions du Couvre-Feu”, is Christophe Bier, who I also believe to be the originator of much of the material used to illustrate book. 

The following description is taken from “Les éditions du Couvre-Feu”, where it can be found at page 157
