Bruxelles: Chez l'Ancien Pierre Marteau (1891). 110pp. A French edition of this controversial text, considered "almost a treatise in disguise on sodomy." (Ashbee at 24.) Editions were routinely confiscated and destroyed throughout, commencing with its original appearance (in Italian) in 152. An earlier publisher, Jules Gay, was condemned for the book in 1868 and all the available copies were destroyed, including the copy at the Bibliothèque Nationale. This issue uses the same imprint as that edition. Very good in original plain paper wrappers, light spotting to title page. Uncommon.
