Another flagellation title, this one a small volume sparsely illustrated , but very nicely done by Louis Malteste. A rare find this one and now just a few years short of its one hundredth birthday.

Well controversy, pursues me whatever I do. And another bibliographical puzzle. This one fits a sub collection, in that it has Van Maele illustrations, but once listed it can go, hence Book for Sale. My attempt to confuse in this instance, is that all other copies on sale and the bibliographical reference indicate 7 hors-texte illustrations, but there are 8, as evidenced by the listing below.
As those of you that read, may already have spotted, I am displaying images in book form, so if you want just the image you will have to do a little work. I am no longer flat bed scanning anything, the books are too fragile and/or rare. Plenty of other sites have sterile paint shopped images, so go look at them. Any way my eyesight, perspective and patience are all completely shot and I cant be bothered.

( 20 x 13.5 x 3 cm. weight 300 gr). illustrated with 8 (eight) (huit), full page illustrations by Martin Van Maele (unsigned), The condition of the book is good, though printed on very cheap paper, which has yellowed with age, there is some splitting to the tail of the spine at the front cover, (see images). The 8 illustrations which have been bound in, are on much better quality paper than the text, and have fared better, so I grade them as very good.

Well this was very nearly impossible, despite my invention; the BBDSM featured in my last post, because of a combination of my disability and the tightness of the binding, it was not possible to obtain flattened images, so this listing is one of my less satisfying.
If there is enough interest I will attempt to do it again but my images do not do the illustrations justice,

[CARLO]. DESERGY, René-Michel. Les Tyrans passionnels. Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne réunies, 1935. Rebound in quarter black leather, on speckled boards, spine with 6 raised bands inter-spaced with gilt decorations , title and author in gilt lettering, Original covers not preserved (25,2 x 17 cm) 266 pages. Contains the frontispiece and 11 other illustrations, (lacks 1 illustration) which I have been able to provide an image of below. There is some wear to the open edge of the boards, and some aging to pages, the illustrations have finger marks on page edges (outside of the illustrations), overall good +
This is a very rare title and worth having the image pages at least professionally cleaned. This title, is in a larger format and printed on high quality paper, than any of the other titles in this series, the illustrations were inspired by photographic models,and the frontispiece is an example of the style of Carlo’s other pseudonym “Charleno”.
I wish I could tell you more, but there is not a lot of information out there, perhaps someone could contribute more information. I suggest that those of you who read French, should obtain a copy of”Carlo” by Robert Merodack’, published by Editions Dominique Leroy 1984, which offers an affordable access to a large number of Carlo illustrations. This volume confirms a frontispiece and 12 illustrations is correct for “Les Tyrans passionnels”.
Again my apologies for the quality of the images.

Chambrières de haute école – DESERGY, René-Michel & [FONTAN, Léo] Fontana (illustrations) Edité par Collection des Orties Blanches, 1934
First edition. Adorned with 16 inset engravings on black loose leaves of Fontana [Léo FONTAN]. Collection of White Nettles, 79 rue de Vaugirard, Paris, 1934. Large in-8 paperback, 14.2 x 23 cm. 272- (2) pp. Cov. on cream paper printed in red and black. A classic of the White Nettles, by one of its house authors and illustrated by one of the best designers of the genre, the artist-painter Léo Fontan (1884 1965) who stood out by drawing the covers of the first Arsène Lupine at Lafitte. He worked wonders in frivolous magazines like La Vie Parisienne and Fantasio. His rare incursions into the flogging literature are enjoying the amused elegance that characterized his style. He puts a lot of humor to illustrate scenes of spankings between ladies of the world and disobedient maids. In this obsessed text, Mondaines take pleasure in the joys of flogging. They are rebounds and feminine rebuts blushing, most of the time but there is also the naked rear of a florist youth too cheeky, Chapter VII is titled “The Atmosphere Hot”: it is valid for the whole book. The novel is followed by a correspondence section consisting of nine letters from readers. Two of them reveal a definite interest for the enema (with two insets by Fontan). First edition. Beautiful copy
I must admit to having posted these illustrations before, primarily because I was interested in making comparisons between this artist, Marilac and Wighead. At the time I did not have a copy of this book and Christophe Bier was kind enough to send me a set of illustrations. Now I actually have a copy am listing the volume, This title for me represents one of the very best illustrated books in the genre, I still favour Wighead, who although remaining a mystery, provided significantly more material. Marilac despite notes elsewhere claiming him as unknown, is in fact Mario Laboccetta, a respected artist in the 20’s who appears to have had a very brief foray into the world of flagellation. The only other title I am aware of by him in this genre is the cover of another Editions Prima title, Gaston Vicennes, L’Amour Fouetté, which I have previously listed and which is also linked at the bottom of this page.
