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.

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.

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.

autobiography of a Flea Erotica Biblion 1901_0013

This one previously unlisted, because it is shaped like a small house brick and very difficult to scan, plus I don’t like the images. But it is a clandestine title and it is going to auction, so I best list it while I still have it,I have  never seen another copy. I strongly suspect that the illustrations are copied from a much earlier edition. Ancient pornography with a very strong anti-clerical theme.
