Books for Trade: Diana Slip, Lingeries Libertines, No 1 September 1933. 9 Rue Richepanse Paris

Having stated quite clearly in my past post that I would be henceforth focusing on my Paris Olympia Press collection, unless of course something really interesting comes along, well something did!

This took an age to scan in but it was a pleasure, this extremely rare and rather lovely lingerie catalogue, is the first in Lingeries Libertines series, although I have no idea how many were actually produced. In part this item interests me because of the association, with the Vidal publishing and fashion empire, and in particular connections to editions Couvre-Feu et al. But although I have no idea which images belong to which photographer I know some are Brassai, and therefore there is a link to my Paris Olympia Press collection as Henry Millers ” Quiet days in Clichy” which, although published in 1956, is illustrated with Brassai photographs from the 1930’s.

Before I forget to mention this is an actual magazine in my collection, and it is available for trade against my ever-diminishing Paris Olympia Press wants, so find me some items that can be located under my Books Wanted listings and you could own the real thing.

So here for your enjoyment are the entire contents of this beautiful photographic memoir of the decadent  1930’s, “The Golden Age of Erotica”

Chairs et Dentelles E.Klem a Portfolio of 20 images. Or in this case 5 of the 20.

Continuing my fascination with this artist, I purchased this incomplete set last year on e-bay, happy to do so for the wonderful original lithographs, but also because of the original case for them, which I hoped might contain some evidence of the publisher, alas this was not so. The seller had dated them around 1940, which is too late.

Given the subject matter I suspect that this is work for the Diana Slip lingerie range which places it from between 1933-1938. The publisher may well be one of the Vidal group, but this portfolio does not appear within the bibliography. The artist was producing erotic work for Editions d’Antin, and Diana Slip is named as the author of “Princesse Cravache”, also illustrated by this artist and published by d’Antin.

Eugene Klementieff, was a famous artist/ designer, illustrator who used the signature, E.Klem, or just E.K, or sometimes no signature for his erotic works, however his style is so distinctive that it is not usually too hard to identify his work.

So to the images, sadly only 5 of the 20 called for, they are not uncommon on the web, but are often only reproduced in black and white, therefore I hope you enjoy them in their glorious colour versions. If anyone has images of the other lithographs in the set (colour), I would be very happy to add them to this listing.

Having earlier posted the 1936 edition bearing the same title, I am very pleased to post the 1933 edition, the similarity between the two starts and ends with the title, this edition is basically an advertising booklet, the “Suggestive” illustrations exist only in the catalogues at the start  and end of the book, and the text appears to consist of excerpts from other publications. I think this is a marvellous item and I hope you will agree, I have set it out in the sequence of the contents,the illustrations, for the advertisements are small, and I have (in most cases), set out the full page followed by an “exploded image of the illustration. The image above at the head of this post is taken from the first page of adverts and is my favourite piece in the book and I have used it to space the images in the following. The insert below is from “Les Editions du Couvre-Feu” published by editions Astarte in 2013. P156

The brain behind the bibliographical content of “Les éditions du Couvre-Feu”, is Christophe Bier, who I also believe to be the originator of much of the material used to illustrate that book.
