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.

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: UNIQUE – For Lovers of the Unusual , undated (1970?) USA.

I generally do not list items which are after 1965, however I allow myself certain exceptions, specifically when any illustrations are from an earlier period, such as this small item, which has the added attaraction of text in English and using the very old fashioned device of text in the form of letters. There are links below the listing to some of the original titles, from which the illustrations in this pamphlet were copied.

UNIQUE – For Lovers of the Unusual , Small undated (1970?) booklet side stapled with illustrated cover in brown and green, (10.5 x 14 cm), inked numericals on font cover, order form inside back cover.41 pages of text, in the form of letters, 7 illustrations which are cropped versions of the illustrations from various Editions Prima publications from the 1930’s, the artist is Herric:- (Chéri Hérouard). Very Good.

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.

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 German language title, which is a rare enough occurence on this blog, apparently first published around 1900, this appears in various editions, but I cannot locate another matching this copy, there is a listing for a 1932 edition Pivately Printed Budapest,  on-line, with claims to being profusely illustrated, without saying how many illustrations or by whom. The illustrations in this copy are small and pasted in on card, one of them is very familiar, having featured in Kearneys, History of Erotic Literature. I have done my best to present the illustrations as clearly as possible, I hope you enjoy them.

Books for Trade: ‎[Berthommé – Saint-André (Louis-André)]‎ ‎Ma vie secrète.‎ ‎Londres (Paris), s.n. (Marcel Seheur), 1885 (1932)

Another little gem, a clandestine title from the 1930’s a French edition of My Secret Life , originally published in English probably by Brancart in 1890, the first French edition appeared in 1923 this was parts of volume one and two, of the English edition, published by Maurice Duflou, this was turned into three illustrated volumes for the current listing. The full version of the English text was finally translated into French by Mathias Pauvert, and published by Stock in 1994.

I am fairly confident that this is the first time all of the illustrations and headings and tailpieces have all been displayed in one go, not without controversial elements, I hope you enjoy them.

Another clandestine title from the golden era of the 1930’s, and another illustrated by T. Mertens, whom I can still find nothing about. Also no idea about the publisher of this one, information on line is very scarce and this appears to be an extremely rare title. From the illustrations you can see why. In an effort to avoid messing with exposure, I scanned these in at 600 dpi, and I am happy with the result, the illustrations are exquisite and now among my favourites, I hope you enjoy them.
