Books for Trade: Max des Vignons, Croisière Voluptueuse, Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies,1934

Another labour of love for me, rescued this one before it disappeared, it is in a very fragile state, and will not survive another scanning session, however it is complete and the illustrations are all present, this being the first in  a small number of illustrated titles I will be posting in the next few weeks.


Max des Vignons, Croisière Voluptueuse, Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies, Paris, 1934,  Colour cover and 10 B&W illustrations by Bartey.

In original illustrated paper wraps, 218 pp (14 x 22.5 cm), Printed on the presses de L’imprimiere de Saint-Denis, Dardaillon for the Librairie Artstique on 12th December 1934.

Summary : “Beautiful passengers cruising on a yacht become the victims of the crew and the captain who enslaves them to their whims by indulging in them abominable pleasures with many realistic illustrations.”

Books for Trade: O’Donnel. Etranges Humiliations. Confidences et Confessions, Editions du Couvre-Feu. s.d. [1933]

Another Fem-dom title from the Vidal empire and a very rare Editions duCouvre-Feu title despite it condition, here the old adage “find another copy” applies.
Dont know how I missed his one i’ve had it for ages, i suspect I may have been reluctant to scan it because of the fragile state of the binding,never mind done now, hope you like it.


O’Donnel. Etranges Humiliations. Confidences et Confessions, Editions du Couvre Feu-s.d. [1933]
In-8 (14 x 22.5 cm) 287 pp. 8 illustrations hors-texte in black on glossy paper signed Y.Vanof.Imprimerie speciale des Editions du Couvre-Feu, 93 rue Compans ,Paris

Book has been rebound in anonymous grey card covers, the original covers are absent, binding is loose and separating and the poor old thing needs resoration and a rebind. However for our purposes it is more than good enough because the illustrations are all present.

Books for Trade: ‎[Berthommé – Saint-André (Louis-André)]‎ ‎Ma vie secrète.‎ ‎Londres (Paris), s.n. (Marcel Seheur), 1885 (1932)

Another little gem, a clandestine title from the 1930’s a French edition of My Secret Life , originally published in English probably by Brancart in 1890, the first French edition appeared in 1923 this was parts of volume one and two, of the English edition, published by Maurice Duflou, this was turned into three illustrated volumes for the current listing. The full version of the English text was finally translated into French by Mathias Pauvert, and published by Stock in 1994.

I am fairly confident that this is the first time all of the illustrations and headings and tailpieces have all been displayed in one go, not without controversial elements, I hope you enjoy them.


Volume 1

Anon: –  ‎Ma vie secrète.‎ Londres (Paris), s.n.

Yet another stunning example from the golden age of erotica, a clandestine title from Duflou, with input from Perceau. This presented scanning problems, as the book is rebound with original covers bound in, so it was not always possible to get the images flat on the scanner bed, unfortunately there is not much to be done about this.

The book is interesting on a number of counts, as yet again this is a Briffaut publication which appears to have variant editions in the same limitations, in this case my copy has colour illustrations, all other copies I have traced have the illustrations in black only, I had a similar experience with my Briffaut copy of L’Anti Justine.

The most interesting point for me however is the anonymous illustrator of this title, which I believe to be the mysterious “Wighead”, I would welcome any comments on this possibility.

And for those among you that have an interest in books rather than just images, this copy has some damp staining in the guttering, and I would welcome any information on the possibility of treating this.

HUGUES, Clovis: ODE A VENUS. ODE AU VAGIN. Poème inédit.Domrémy,

A l’Enseigne de la Pucelle, s.d. (vers 1933) [Paris, Maurice Duflou]

1 volume in-8 (22 x 16.5 cm), paperback, 69- (1) pages. 10 photo-gravures inset in colour. Cream cover printed in red and black with two initials for the letters Q and V. The cover modestly bears the title Ode to Venus while the title page clearly indicates Ode to Vagina. Rebound copy with original covers bound in.

This volume contains a note on the author signed Jean Tiretta, the facsimile of the last page of the manuscript signed Klau-Vizuq, the Ode to Vagina, a notice on the Ode to Piron Priory by Helpey (Louis Perceau) , Ode to Priapus and The Seven Beatitudes.

With regard to Clovis Hugues (1851-1907), Aristide Briand wrote: “There were in him Beranger, Camille Desmoulins and Tartarin of Tarascon”. In other words: communard, freemason, socialist, poet; it was all this in turn and at once. The Ode to the Vagina dates from 1906. One knows nothing about the illustrator of this beautiful edition out of the presses of Maurice Duflou.Reference: Dutel, Bibliography of erotic works published clandestinely in French between 1920 and 1970, no. 2078.

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.

Another clandestine title from the golden era of the 1930’s, and another illustrated by T. Mertens, whom I can still find nothing about. Also no idea about the publisher of this one, information on line is very scarce and this appears to be an extremely rare title. From the illustrations you can see why. In an effort to avoid messing with exposure, I scanned these in at 600 dpi, and I am happy with the result, the illustrations are exquisite and now among my favourites, I hope you enjoy them.

Another delightful clandestine title from the 1930’s, and having recently confessed my ignorance of the identity of T. Mertens, (illustrator), I find myself listing a title that definitely is illustrated by him, but this unfortunately takes me no closer to identifying him or her. The illustrations are very delicate and do not scan well, I have therefore used enhanced exposure to clarify the images for display on the blog. In a recent  listing ” Françoise ou Les Plaisirs du mariage”;   I referenced  that the illustrator had been identified as either T.Mertens or Rojan, having compared the two I am not convinced that T.Mertens is the illustrator of that title. I have linked “Françoise ou Les Plaisirs du mariage”, at the bottom of the page so you can make your own judgement.

Books for Trade: [Gabriel Honoré Riquetti, comte de MIRABEAU] L’ADAM LASCIF OU LETTRES A LA MARQUISE. Au Carquois d’Argent, s.d. [vers 1950]

Another late clandestine title c  1950, and another unusual one for me in that it is what I rather rudely refer to as “a book in a box”, that very French production of loose leaves in sheets, in a folder, however I must admit that the few of this type that I have dealt with are an absolute dream to scan in, and without any stress to the book as is the case with a standard bound book. This is a very lovely item and was simply too good to allow it to get away, because of the nature of the production there are rather a lot of images, and I hope you enjoy them.

Edition published around 1950 , adorned with 19 free engravings (dry tips) of Gaston Barret drawn in black, of which 10 hors-texte and 9 bandeaux. Vignettes on wood drawn in bistre at the head of each letter. The work was seized by order of the Court of Assizes of Paris of May 29, 1956. This epistolary work attributed to Mirabeau the son, author of the Erotica Biblion, is composed of 9 letters addressed to a marquise. The gallant and free tone of the text fits perfectly with the deliberately furious and erotic illustration given here by Gaston Barret.
