Titles are listed by published date and then in alphabetical order. In order to show the books from an actual publishing perspective for research purposes, those titles with false dates or no date are listed under the probable date of publication. Titles found in advertisements but were not actually found are listed at the end of the checklist.
In general, those titles listed between 1885 and 1895 may or may not have been published by Carrington, as that period of his life and his publishing activities (if any) are based mainly on speculation. Those titles after 1895 in which Carrington is not the obvious publisher will state 'possibly' or 'probably' Carrington.
Titles listed between c.1907 and c.1912 were published by Carrington while in Brussels, although in some instances the actual city of publication may have been Paris and/or London via an agent (i.e. Harry Nichols].
The majority of the entries with a Kinsey citation where seen by this compiler. Some title page transcriptions are based on an image of the title page, not a physical examination, and will be noted as such.
Large 8vo pamphlet. 32pp. Printed on smooth wove paper.
Possibly Carrington. The date of publication is from Bibliographie sur la Flagellation published in En Virginie, 1901. This work is reprinted from Town Talk [a scandal and sporting newspaper], London 1885. The French translation, probably done by Hector France, was published by Augustin Brancart in 1886 as Discipline à l'Ecole et dans le Boudoir.

190pp. Limited edition of 200 copies printed on hand-made Van Gelder. 20 photo-plates (in blue) from the 1885 edition.

Small 8vo. Approximately 136pp. irregularly numbered, in sections. Printed by Veuve Félix Guy in a limited edition of 75 copies on hand-made paper and an unknown number printed on ordinary wove paper.
The title page transcription is taken from a collector's catalogue. Despite the authorship stated on the title page, these poems were not written by Lord Byron. According to the entry in Cambridge "Cf. Wise, Ashley Lib. I, 168. Knight, Lord Byron's marriage, p. 162 states that both pieces are probably by George Colman the younger [1762-1836], and that the "Notes to Don Leon" were written at various times by various hands." This work was first published in 1866 by William Dugdale, with Leon to Annabella having been printed one year earlier in 1865 [Ashbee: Vol.1, p.189-193]. Don Leon consists of 1,455 lines entirely in defense of sodomy. Later published London: Fortune Press, 1934 from the Carrington edition.

8vo.  + 139pp. Printed by Edouard Maheu in a limited edition of 200 copies printed on glossy wove paper watermarked Original Crown Mill.
Printed and issued by Maheu but probably by Carrington as well. If so, it is one of Carrington's earliest known clandestine publications. Re-issued, again probably by Carrington, in 1895. This work was also probably published by Edward Avery in 1890. A clandestine U.S. edition was published in New York: c.1930 by Erotika Biblion Society.
(Mendes 49-A. British Library: P.C.29.a.19)
223pp. Limited edition of 250 copies printed on thin sized paper.
Possibly Carrington and/or Mlle. Doucé.
19cm. 102pp. Printed on hand-made paper watermarked Van Gelder Zonen. All pages enclosed in wavey red frame with stars in corners.

(Mendes: 69-A. British Library: P.C.14.g.59. Bibliothèque Nationale: 8-Y2-90000 (1110))
95pp. Printed on smooth laid paper.
Possibly Carrington. Previously published by Dugdale [?] in c.1845.
Printed by Edouard Maheu on smooth laid paper watermarked Original Crown Mill.
Possibly Carrington. A collection of stories, which includes: The Mysteries of Venus; Kissing or the Seduction of E-R S-N; The Amours of Alibeck and Santon; Grisette and the Student; My Naughty Niece as a Model; The Garters; The Strawberry; How It's Done, or Seduction Unveiled; and Singular and Mysterious Death. Except for Kissing and Amours of Alibeck, these stories were reprinted in Carrington's The Birchen-Bouquet, 1896. This work was previously published by William Lazenby in 1881.
Pamphlet. 36 pages. Burnt-umber colored wrappers with decorative frame. Title page printed in black only.
Title page only seen. Note that this copy is an earlier edition than the one mentioned in Mendes [See: Mendes: P47-A]. According to Legman's penciled in note on the front flyleaf of this present work, this is "Carrington's first book". Only one copy is known to exist and is in a private collection. First published in London, probably by William Lazenby and Edward Avery, in 1851  (the title page shows the false date of 1851) [Ashbee: Vol.3, p.483].
10.16cm. x 15.88cm. xvi + 447pp. Limited edition of 250 copies printed on hand-made paper watermarked Arches. According to advert "a few on China". Title page in red and black.
Probably Carrington. Although the title page says 1895, "it was certainly not published before 1898 or 1899" [per Peter Mendes]. This work is an English translation [adaptation] of L'Anti-Justine by Restif de la Bretonne, originally published in 1798, to which he probably set up the type himself. Bretonne was known to write directly onto the printing press as opposed to writing the conventional way on paper first. The translation of this present work was possibly done by John Stephen Farmer. Note: the title word "Cuthbert" is spelled "Cughbert" in the Kinsey catalogue

Through the years the authorship of this work has been falsely attributed to Théophile Gautier, Victor Hugo or Alexandre Dumas...however, the author of 'Violette' is now believed to be Mannoury d'Ectot; a host to poets and artists at her house in northern France and girlfriend of Théodore Hannon, author of Rimes de joie (1881).

The author of this work but the two names that have been put forth are M. Benoit, a French lawyer and possibly Richard Monckton-Milnes. Gershon Legman attributes the translation to John Stephen Farmer [Legman: The Horn Book, p.52]. This work is an adaptation of Instruction Libertine, published in 1860 Brussels by J.P. Blanche. The original MS was probably done for Frederick Hankey [Mendes: 111-A]. A second edition was published by Erotica Biblion Society of London and New-York, 1899; possibly published by Carrington and/or Charles Hirsch. A later c.1935 reprint from the 1899 plates was published under the imprint: Printed for the Erotica Biblion Society of London and New-York, 1923 [Mendes 111-F].

The French translation was done by Carrington in 1901 as Les Mystères de la Maison de la Verveine and again in 1904 as La Maison de la Verveine, both with the author as Jean de Villiot. The original work was issued in two parts: pages 1-96 were issued in 1881, the remaining pages in 1882, probably by Lazenby [Ashbee: Vol.3, p.260 and Mendes 74-A]. It's also possible that the author is not Sala but Campbell Reddie, or at least Reddie was involved [Gibson, Ian. The Erotomaniac: p.108].
