Books for Trade: Anon(Attributed to Stanilas de Rhodes) The Autobiography of a Flea.Printed for the Erotica Biblion Society of London and New York 1901 (1926)

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.

Books for Trade: Janine Peyrin: Luxure et Souffrance, Roman de Mouers. Clandestine Publication n.p n.d (1950)

Luxure_0012

Back to detailing some of my 1950’s clandestine titles, most of which, are illustrated, sadly the quality of many of the illustrations is poor, with no real artistic merit, this applies to many of the clandestine Losfeld titles, as well as some others, like this title which are apparently not Losfeld productions. Some titles already listed such as the three “Flores” productions, are clearly intended to have a cartoon like quality, which I think is their saving grace. Many of the others are just poorly executed, and I am listing them primarily because they are rare and no one else is going to do it.

Cruelles Frénésies

Books for Trade: Anon (James Reddie Campbell) The Amatory Experiences of a Surgeon N.p., n.y.(1925?)

Another late clandestine publication, Peter Mendes in his “Clandestine Erotic Fiction in English” Scolar Press 1993/1998, at index 87 A/B, lists 3 copies, the first with the original title Printed for the Nihilists Moscow, 1881, (possibly published by Brancart) the second with the variant title “My Life’s Adventures” The Erotica Biblion Society 1904, he references a third copy which appears to match the one listed here. The original edition was prosecuted and presumably lead to the change of title in the Erotica Biblion edition.


This copy is embellished with three engraved erotic illustrations that look to me to have come from an earlier publication if this indeed the 1925, edition, Mendes does speculate about an unseen edition which might have served as the master for this copy which probably originated with J.Berge, in Rotterdam c 1902-1905.

Pleased to have found two very small printers devices in this copy that serve with the title as decorations to this page, the floral banner between the images does not come from this book.

Books for Trade:Memoirs of Fanny Hill, by John Cleland, A Genuine Reprint of the Rare Edition of 1749, Paris and Benares, The Kamashastra Society 1907

IMG_0001

Well yet another clandestine edition of Fanny Hill, and although I can find references to Kamashastra editions I cannot find an exact match for this one, it is stated a limited edition of 250 copies, I have found editions with and without plates, but this one has a frontispiece and 11 explicit plates, after Paul Avril, and all but one are hand coloured, or at least partially coloured, I must say the plates are a bit odd and appear to have been coloured by someone who was possibly colour blind. Regardless a rare enough item and interesting in its oddity.
