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.

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.
