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.

Books for Trade: Professeur Alexander, Max, Satyres et Flagellants, Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies, Paris, 1909. illustrations by G.Topfer.

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.

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.

Solid broaching. Gray-blue paper cover printed in pink-red on the first dish (title and floret), on the back we read the title ” Neither Dutel (who simply quotes them) nor the other bibliographers (Alexandrian, Pauvert, Kearney) evoke the illustrations that adorn this volume. We believe we recognize as author of these pretty free etchings P. BELOTTI who illustrated at the same time several erotic works published clandestinely (Jacinthe or the images of sin).

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.

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.
