Books for Trade: Weird Women; The Crimson Curtain; Happiness  in Crime; A Dinner of Atheists; A Woman’sVengeance. Translated from the French  of  Barbey d’Aurevilly.  With Eight Wood Engravings.  London.  Privately Printed. For the Lutetian Bibliophiles’ Society, (Charles Carrington). MCM. (1900)

This is yet another title where the size of the book,its binding , age and rarity, made flat scanning impossible, so the images below are photographic, I am aware that they are not perfectly square or flat, but they are the best I can that I can do with available resources. In any case I  think they look pretty good.

A slight departure, In that this book is not strictly speaking, “erotica”,  It is however a clandestine publication, The Lutetian Bibliophiles Society actually being our old pal Charles Carrington.
This is the first English translation (by some considerable number of years), of Barbey d’Aurevilly’s masterpiece of decadent literature, “Les Diaboliques” a sort of mixture of crime, horror and the supernatural, more closely related to the Gothic novels of the late 1700’s than the erotica of the Fin de Siecle 1890’s. Originally published as individual short stories, the collection was published as Les Diaboliques, in October 1874. In December 1874, the book was seized and prosecuted as an offence to public morality, In 1875 the charges were dismissed. As is often the case,  the scandal made the book more popular, despite this, it was not reprinted until 1882 in an edition revised by Barbey and considered the definitive French language edition; this anonymous translation published clandestinely by Carrington in 1900 is based on the 1882 edition. The entire books is dedicated to strange stories of dangerous women, the French title Les Diaboliques, literally translates to “devilish”, but is generally accepted as “The She Devils”, not to be confused with the 1958 Ophelia Press title of that name which  is an English translation of Piere Louys’ “Trois Filles et leur Mere”

A fascinating character in his own right, Barbey was a great friend of Baudelaire and had attempted to assist him in the 1850’s when “Le Fleurs du Mal” was prosecuted. In his later years he was feted by writers such as Leon Bloy and J.K Huysmans.He died on April 23 rd 1899.

I have waited a long time to list this, I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy from my good friends’ at Libreria Scarpignato in Rome. who agreed that the book is well travelled and worn, and indeed its boards are beaten, almost as though subjected to the kind of thrashing so artfully displayed in its contents, its front cover is taped and it is shaken , perhaps it had forgotten its safe word?  But despite all this it has survived, it has wonderful presence, it has weight and it a delight to hold, printed on heavy gloss paper, and illustrations that are out of this world. and so very rare.

Wighead is my favourite artist of this genre, I have been fortunate enough to have owned a small number of the original titles illustrated by this genius of decadent art who still remains unidentified. This listing is a first draft and I will add blow ups of some of the images a few at a time, this is for my benefit as I am sure the picture vultures will descend and claim the images as their own, and display them without context. This is a book, and in the first instance the images are displayed as they appear in the book, I have cropped some of the smaller images, which I use to act as spacers between, the pages, as anyone who reads any of my editorial commentary  will be aware, I just love a book that provides all the elements for its listing on my blog.

Books for Trade: Lady Impéria, Les Égarements d’un Asservi. No publisher. No date but Editions d’Antin (c 1936)

Another title from the “Vidal” stable of of bookshops and publishers, which was composed of,- Les éditions du Couvre-feu : éditions d’Antin, éditions du Chevet, édition Curio, éditions Georges de Cayla, éditions Idéal, éditions de Minuit, éditions Richepanse & Le Jardin d’Eros.

It appears common for Editions d’Antin titles to be issued as clandestine, some without even printer details, as this copy. The single identifying factor, is the calligraphic motif on all the covers, it could be an L or a Z or even a stylised whip? This publishers or printers mark is sometimes the only way to  link a title to an originator.

As this is not an illustrated title it is relatively easy to list, with only a little research, it is  of interest to the serious erotic bibliophile, because it is a clandestine title that does not appear to have been identified as such in the major bibliographies.  For bibliographic information see. Les éditions du couvre-feu, Christophe Bier, editions Astarte 2013.

I have taken the liberty of attempting to translate the synopsis from the French (Image above), Any mistakes are mine alone and I offer apologies in advance , both to Christophe and anyone taking the trouble to read this.

(The title roughly translates as ” The Errors of a Slave”)

“”The financier Robert Brot-Gillières, bearer of the Legion of Honor, gravitates around the perverse masseuses and the flogging houses. In search of new thrills, he lets himself be manhandled by two ordinary women, Mrs. Voulay and her fifteen-year-old niece. Mathilde, They understand the financial gain they can derive from him, by treating him as a slave. Changed by his masochism, the man becomes extremely unpleasant to his wife. Intrigued by this change of character, Simone, her daughter-in-law, refers to Miss Diana, a professor of physical culture who commences to initiate him into Sapphism and fantasies of flagellation. After having dismissed the two greedy battleaxes, the Professor confuses the masochist by delivering him to two masked flagellants … Simone and her mother! “Unmask” added Madame Brot-Gillières with scathing irony, “the voluptuous Robert will not need to look for sensations elsewhere: he will have his whippers at home!” “

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.

Well I seem to have become a cataloguer of the incomplete, and here again I offer partial sets of illustrations for books I do not posses, but the illustrations I do. These are a recent auction acquisition, where they were described as 13 illustrations by E.Klem for books by Jim Galding, and that much at least appears to be correct, however the lot was further described as a complete set for “L’Éducatrice Passionée” Editions D’Antin 1937 and 3 illustrations for L’amoureuse Discipline Editions D’Antin 1938. Having checked my trusty bibliography;- Les Editions du Couvre-Feu. Christophe Bier Editions Astarte 2013, I can confirm that only 7 of the illustrations belong to L’Éducatrice Passionée, as the bilblo displays all 10, and I have previously listed 8 of the 10 in

Books for TRADE: A Portfolio of a suite of eight images from “L’Éducatrice Passionée” Comba-Borel Publishing n.d. C 1980

By Combining this new listing and the listing above you will be able to have all 10 illustrations for this title.

As for L’amoureuse Discipline Editions D’Antin 1938, the bibliography only displays 7 of the 10 called for and I appear to have 4 of that set and 2 orphaned images that sit outside that seven, as all the other E.Klem titles listed in the bibliography, display all illustrations against their titles, I have take the somewhat unscientific , step of assuming that my two orphaned images belong to L’amoureuse Discipline. I hope that is clear, any dissenting voices please put me on the right track, or forever hold your peace. (tempted by the double- entendre)

Anyway enough of that and on to the only thing you lot are interested in which is free images. Please note that my scans have enhanced exposure and are much sharper and clearer than the originals, also as an experiment I have scanned these at 600 dpi which means that if you click on the image you are likely to require a much bigger computer to view the enlarged image.

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”
