Books for Trade: Louys, Pierre. Pibrac. Quatrains érotiques. Sans lieu, Aux dépens d’un Amateur pour le profit des quelques autres [i.e. Paris, Télin?], 1933 [1934]

 

 

Having apparently wasted a significant amount of cash on a new scanner, which claimed to be a book scanner, I find myself using my 12 year old Canon Lide 110 yet again as it is much easier to use and causes less harm to the books than the new model.

Also having had a major clear out on eBay, I am sadly coming to the conclusion that eBay is not really a valid outlet for auctions, unless you want to give the books away, I did however make enough to buy the above mentioned scanner (bad decision) and this wonderfully rare title listed below.

Books for Trade: Anon: ‎Voluptés par une convaincue‎ .”Mon livre secret” Sans date, circa 1938.

Another clandestine title and a very odd one, the only reference I can find for this one is a brief listing of another copy as follows lists it as  ‎a numbered edition with 10 illustrations inserted, which this one also has, with a date of 1938 and referenced at Dutel 2642. It may well be that the illustrations are tipped in in other copies , but in mine they are pasted in over text, you can lift the image to read the text, but this is the first time I have found this odd practice. The illustrations are well executed and possibly controversial, I would have guessed this as a post war production, but bow to Mr Dutel’s superior knowledge. Could almost be an Isou- Losfeld.

So as always if anyone can shed any more light, do complete a contact form. On which subject the first image appears to have an exposure problem (in more than one way) not my doing that is how it looks and all the images are flat scanned, with no exposure adjustment.

Books for Trade: Anon (Connie O’Hara (José André Lacour)‎ ‎Clayton’s College. Sous le signe d’Éros n.d (1950?)

 

 

A  late clandestine title, which is the first in a series of very rare and interesting finds that I will be listing over the next few weeks, this is an unusual erotica in that it is basically a crime novel, the nearest comparison would likely be “I Shall Spit on Your Graves”. Never having read this title I cannot give you a story line, but I must admit I am intrigued by how a naked man and woman end up on a roof being shot at by a fully clothed chap in a dressing gown. ( you have to see the picture, below)


Illustrated with 12 erotic orig.-lithographs in two colours. Loose as issued in original wrappers. One of 472 copies on hand made paper (total 500.) Titlepage and letters of chapters printed in blue with 21 erotic initials. The identity of the artist is unknown; his illustration are explicit and of high plasticity. They are influenced by the American pin-up style of the 50s.

Clayton’s College, first published in the late 1940s, was convicted three times by the 17th Correctional Division of the Seine in 1950, 1953 and 1957, each of these convictions having been upheld on appeal.

Books for Trade:Anonymous (Isidore Isou?): Les Putains ou le traite des perversions. n.p., n.d., (1950)

Another late clandestine title and something of  a mystery, the limited information I can find has an apparent link to Isidore Isou , and therefore potentially Losfeld, the only reference to an illustrated edition appears to concern prior listings of this copy, which looks to me to be extra illustrated (meaning there were not illustrations in the original book), a clue to this is that the illustrations are , except for one, double sided and by different hands. Three of the illustrations are certainly by Jean Morisot, which are evidenced by the ogre like men depicted, the others I do not know. The double sided images may originate with one of Losfeld’s productions such as ” Florilèges de la volupté ou Les Voluptés d’une vicieuse”, which is linked at the base of this post.

Books for Trade: Les Paillards, Dede Lamoureux Edité par sans nom [Francis Flores, Toulouse]

It is a long time since I listed one of these, but as I am painfully aware, that all but a very small number of viewers, have no real, interest in The Paris Olympia Press, here is a small present as advance warning the the site will increasingly gravitate to the full details of my collection and away from other material, unless I get anything very interesting to list that is.


A clandestine publication, in a limited edition, numbered 406/500, no date, no publisher but beyond any reasonable doubt, Frances Flores. 199 pp, with Title page and six explicit erotic illustration, in a spectrum of colours, by an unsigned artist.  Some of the illustrations are identical (barring colouration) to illustrations offered in L’Aquarium des Voluptés, another Flores title dated around 1955, therefore no reason to suspect that this title is far from the same date.

As part of my clear out campaign, I discovered this group of erotic woodcuts, tucked away in a cupboard, I have had them for many years, and would like some help to identify what they are from and hopefully who the artist might be. I am fairly confident that they relate to a text, as each image has a title in pencil below it. If you click to enlarge you can see the name on each image. The text is French. These 14 woodcuts are beautifully executed, two have an image on the reverse, one appears to be an early draft of the woodcut on the verso  and the other unrelated, for the reverse image and also a small stamp mark that appears on the back of one image I have darkened the exposure to make it clearer. 12 of the images are on a parchment type material, the other  2 on a thick card.
