Le Petit Parisien

Paris: 2 Aout 1908. # 1017.

Item #7659

The French periodical contains a cover illustration of Philip, Prince of Eulenburg, on trial in Berlin for perjury while recumbent in his bed. Although he was married, Eulenburg was connected in homosexual liaisons with members of the Kaiser's inner circle, including Count Kuno von Moltke, the military commander of Berlin. The public exposure of these liaisons in 1907 led to the infamous Harden-Eulenburg Affair. In 1908, Eulenburg was placed on trial for perjury due to his denial of his homosexuality; the trial was repeatedly postponed due to Eulenburg's claim of poor health.
Very good, light spotting to covers.
