Books for Trade: Andre Vergereau, Mademoiselle Cinglade, Editions Prima n.d. (1936) illustrated by Marilac (Mario Laboccetta).

 

 

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.

Rather a good find this one and quite a surprise, though far from being an expert on flagellation novels, as evidenced by this blog a significant number of them have passed through my hands and been recorded on this site. I cannot ever remember seeing any depiction of pubic hair in any of these books and most definitely not a depiction of a vagina. This little volume has both. These images are of course commonplace in clandestine erotica, but not so in flagellation novels which were not illegal or subject to prosecution when originally published, although large  numbers were prosecuted in the 1950’s for unknown reasons.

I have difficulty finding other complete copies to reference, Bibliocuriosa (link at the base of this listing ) reference the illustrator of this edition as Leon Roze, but as they do not appear to have the illustrations they cannot have seen that they are clearly signed G.Topfer. I have previously had to apologise for difficulty in scanning images in rebound books and must do so again for this title, it is simply not possible to get the image flat to the scanner in a tightly bound book,but I have done my best.

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.

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.

IMG_0008

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”

Another major player in the 1930’s flagellation market, along with Orties Blanches, were Les Editions Couvre-Feu, followed by Le Jardin d’Eros, distinctly different in that the contents and illustrations were more twisted and aimed at torture and humiliation, unlike the titles issued by Editions Prima, which always seem to have smiling faces , no matter what act of depravity is taking place, the characters in these editions seem to be taking it a bit more seriously.

Another exceedingly rare title, which as you can see from the cover images is very fragile. Christophe Bier, notes in his bibliographical study (referenced below), that the illustrations in this title, by “Kurtys” are imitative of “Carlo”, and not that well done, I quite like them, but they do pale into insignificance compare against “Wighead” and E.
