Charles Carrington

A Bibliography [By Title] of Works Published
Copyright © 2003 Sheryl Straight

Those titles published 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 educated speculation. Those titles after 1895 in which Carrington is not the obvious publisher will state 'possibly' or 'probably' Carrington.

Titles published between c.1907 and c.1912 were issued by Carrington during his Brussels exile, 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.

See also the checklist for Roberts and Dardaillon, agents for Carrington while he was exiled in Brussels (1907-1912).

    13.97cm. x 22.23cm. 172pp. Printed on wove paper. Title page printed in red and black.

    This work is an English translation of Un été à La Campagne, published by Poulet-Malassis in Brussels, 1868 [although possibly earlier according to Pia 704] with a frontispiece by Félicien Rops. Later published in 1925 with the original title of Un été à La Campagne, illustrated by Martin van Maele.

    Falsly ascribed to Gustave Droz. The story goes that a young man in partnership with M. Lecrivain called on Poulet-Malassis, offering him an erotic novel which he had written. On looking the MS through, Poulet-Malassis found that although the style was dull, the tale was capable of improvement and rewrote the book.

    This work is a reprint of the first 6 chapters of the first volume of My Secret Life. In Forbidden Books the publication date is given as 1901. It is thought that Carrington may have been the courier between the author in London and the publisher in Amsterdam or Brussels [Augustin Brancart?] of the original manuscript of My Secret Life. Carrington was later selling the 11 volume set, possibly remainders [12 volumes if you include the separate extensive index] in c.1897-8 and later in 1902.

    DON LEON | a poem | by the Late Lord Byron, | to which is added | LEON TO ANNABELLA | an Epistle from | Lord Byron to Lady Byron | London | Printed for the Booksellers | 1866 [c.1890?]

    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 and may be incorrect. 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.

    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
