Books for Trade: DESERGY, René-Michel: Les Tyrans passionnels. Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies, 1935, Illustrations by Carlo

Les Tyrans Passionelle the definitive edition?
Carlo needs no introduction, to the initiated, his original editions are amongst the most collectible , in the genre, his fantastic, and outrageous art, has been collected since they were first printed, both art collectors and book collectors have competed to own the original illustrations, in many cases denuding the books of the accomanying images.A complete original with the equally bizarre text they were originally designed to embellish, is a rare thing indeed!
This particular title is, sometimes referenced as an example of the artists transformation into “Charleno”, an apparent alternative identity, this I think is just part of the publishers hype, and the confusing propaganda, which goes with the territory of the selling of such material.
For me this title is in fact, the transition point at which the art became the primary product, and the book the vehicle with which to promote it.


[CARLO]. DESERGY, René-Michel. Les Tyrans Passionnels. Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne Réunies, 1935. In original publishers paper covers, printed in red and black. Spine(repaired with minor loss), author, title, prix 70 Frs, and publisher, in red and black printed horizontally.

Facsimile of Original Cover

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. I have extensive listings of titles  from Vidal house imprints I will attempt to update the links to make it easier to group them. This is one of my Rescued Books. Lacking original cover and one of the illustrations both of which are present in facsimile, in this listing but physically absent from the actual book.

Books for Trade: La Beuque, Jean de: Femmes et Corsaires, Amateur-Biblio, Paris,1931. Illustrations by G. Topfer.

Jean de La Beuque is probably the pseudonym of a French author who published sadomasochistic accounts from 1926 to 1930. The accounts published after 1931 are either re-editions of his texts or an unfinished work, completed by Alan Mac Clyde . The introductions to some publications contain notes from editors or Mac Clyde regarding La Beuque’s illness, recovery and death. Editions of texts published under the name of La Beuque in the 1950s are possibly texts previously published under a different title, unless the editor has contented himself with using the pseudonym of La Beuque for texts of a contemporary author.(some of these are written as La Beucque)

See Link :http://www.bibliocuriosa.com/index.php/La_Beuque,_Jean_de

An interesting theory but more likely is I suspect that Mac Clyde was La Bueque, and killed this pseudonym off, for some reason, he did after all also write as Juana La Paz and Jane Spanking! and goodness knows who else?

Books for trade: VERGERIE, Jean, pseud. – Histoire de Priska. Éditions de la Hippogriffe (Losfeld) [c. 1955]

No one knows today who was behind the pseudonym Jean Vergerie. He is the author of 7 works published by Editions Balland in their Collection Eglantine between 1935 and 1938. The original editions were openly published, unlike this one,  published clandestinely by Eric Losfeld in the mid-1950s. The original editions were also illustrated, and are now pretty much impossible to find. Anyone who has copies of the originals, who would like to donate images, please get in touch via a contact form.

Bibliocuriosa Collection de l’Églantine

These novels are all, without exception, erotic sado-masochistic tales of the worst or the best kind, depending on whether or not to consider Jean Vergerie as the worthy descendant of the Marquis de Sade in the twentieth century. Violence, torture, hellish machinery, monstrous, realistic or fantasized tales, everything is there to make these works the symbols of a literature apart in the production of this period.

Those of you who follow my blog regularly, may recall my referring to myself as a master of the incomplete. This is because i have to search far as wide to find books that are often unavailable at any price, this means I sometimes buy incomplete items so that I can record their existence,  before they disappear forever. It is true to say that many of these titles may now be available as eBooks, however despite the name they quite simply are not books at all.

The present title is such an example, and as the saying goes ” You cant judge a book by its cover”, that is especially pertinent to this book because it doesn’t have one! Yes sadly the colour illustrated cover is missing, I purchased it as it is with a black and white facsimile of the original cover, because there is not another copy on sale anywhere in the world.  Anything illustrated by Carlo is in high demand and sometimes collectors need to buy what is available, so as to have a copy until a better one  comes  along.  As I do not collect these titles I must take what I can get, which means I can share the result with you. If anyone can provide a  colour scan of the original cover, to enable me to complete the listing  I would be extremely grateful, and give them a mention.

UPDATE 21/03/20

Many thanks to Joe Zinnato of Eros Archives for the colour scan of the cover.
