Van Rod, Aimé, Asmodée, Visites fantastiques au pays du fouet. Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies. Paris 1922. Illustrated by G.Topfer
in original illustrated publishers card covers printed in red and blue. Illustrated cover, 1 frontispiece, 3 full page and many in-text illustrations in B&W, 4 color illustrations.223 pages. Certainly an obscure title and rare in original covers, a very nice copy only marred by light sporadic spotting throughout.

As  mentioned elsewhere, the majority of flagellation novels avoided prosecution at the time they were published, only to become the focus of prosecution in the 1950’s.
Bécourt 75: Sentenced by the 10th Chamber Seine Correctional Court on 8 May 1950 and then by the Paris Court of Appeal 10th Chamber on 27 October 1953; sentenced by the 17th Chamber Correctional Court of the Seine on November 25, 1953 and by the Paris Court of Appeal 10th Chamber on June 9, 1954.

This Book


Strictly speaking, not erotica, but certainly curiosa and having already listed the Carrington English translation, published as “Weird Women”, it seems fair to post this edition, especially as it features a great deal of nudity, composed by an outstanding artist that I have never featured before. Also worth note that this particular book is now live at auction on Catawiki and well worth bidding on.

Charles Carrington Collection: Weird Women

 

Charles Carrington Collection: STORIES FROM THE FOLK-LORE OF RUSSIA.[ALEKSANDER N. AFANASYEV] Done into English by the translator of The book of exposition in the science of coition, The old man young again, and other charming works ejusdem farinae. Paris: Charles Carrington,1897

This Book

Another Carrington from the Michael Neal collection, and a marginal one for this site, as it is bawdy rather than erotic, but a marvellous volume nonetheless. It has the distinction of being in English and being profusely illustrated, Carrington’s published in English often have old plates or engravings, but unlike French editions, rarely have commissioned illustrations, this one is an exception. Like many other Carrington publications it is very hard to find. It also has the distinction of possessing my favourite Cover/Title Page and an outstanding frontispiece.

I must take issue with the bibliographic description as far as the illustrators are concerned, the frontispiece and 6 colour wash illustration are by J.Wely, the majority of the in text illustrations and other page illustrations are signed or initialled by J.Wely and G.D (Georges Dola), a few of the illustrations are unsigned, but I cannot recognise them as Bayros, perhaps someone out there can put me straight on this. The book is complete and there are no missing pages.


Title Page

STORIES FROM THE FOLK-LORE OF RUSSIA [ALEKSANDER N. AFANASYEV]. Done into English by the translator of The book of exposition in the science of coition, The old man young again, and other charming works ejusdem farinae. Paris: Charles Carrington, 1897.13.97cm. x 21.59cm. xix + 265pp. Limited edition of 500 copies on Van Gelder. Frontispiece done in green, peach and black by J. Wely. 10 plates by Franz von Bayros + 6 plates by J. Wely.

Originally published in Geneva, c.1872 as Russikya zavetniya skazki (Russian Secret Tales) by Aleksandr N. Afanasyev. This was a supplement to Afanasyev’s Narodnye russkie skazki (Popular Russian Tales), 1855-1864. In 1883 a group of folklorists published a yearbook of erotic folklore titled Kryptádia (Secret Things), the first volume being a French translation of Afanasyev’s Russikya zavetniya skazki. Isidore Liseux also translated Afanasyev’s text into French in 1891. That edition being the text Carrington used to translate this present work into English [See Legman: The Horn Book, p.475-476].

This Book

Second listing for me of books in this small series, but this title was,  I believe the first of the illustrated flagellation novels produced by this author. this one is complete, and reveals in its print details that it was run off by the same press that was producing books for the Vidal imprints including titles produced by Jim Galding and J  Van Styk, which had a very similar extreme style.

Unsure whether the colour illustration was part of a dust-wrapper, or as was sometimes the case, pasted over the front cover, or otherwise just tipped in as a frontispiece.
