Dresden: E. Piersons Verlag (1901). 161pp.
An early German novel with a strong undercurrent of homosexuality, wherein the protagonist
strives for "high ideals" and exaggeratedly rejects females "before it degenerates into unnatural passion". Baron Baillou published several books on esthetics and philosophy, but is largely unknown. Very god in contemporary marbled boards, wear and short tears to linen spine. Quite rare.
