    Told by a set of joyous students. The Erotica Biblion Society of New-York, 1897.

    18cm. Two volumes. pp. [21] + 222, [7] + 118. Limited edition of 250 copies printed on smooth laid paper.

    Probably Carrington and/or Charles Hirsch. Possibly first issued in France by Unsinger in 1894. Reissued in c.1920, possibly by Maurice Duflou [Mendes 90-C]. The copy seen at Kinsey appears to be a later reprint.

  5. MAISON DE LA VERVEINE, LA

    JEAN DE VILLIOT | LA FLAGELLATION A TRAVERS LE MONDE | La Maison | de la Verveine | Illustrations de | MARTIN VAN MAELE | et EMILE MAS | [vignette] | PARIS | LIBRAIRIE DES BIBLIOPHILES PARISIENS | [line] | 1904

    14.61cm. x 22.86cm. xv + 253pp. Limited edition of 500 copies on Hollande [copy seen is un-numbered]. Title page printed in red and black. Decorative red border on all pages [except for the 17 hors-text illustrations]. Illustrated chapter pieces. Tailpieces. 17 engraved plates hors-text, + five additional full-page engravings enclosed in decorative red borders included as part of the pagination by Martin van Maele. Numerous in-text illustrations by Emile Mas.

    The copy seen is in original tan paper wraps. From the series La Flagellation à Travers le Monde. This work is done in three parts: Verbena House p.1-150, Le Révérend Arthur Philip Calvedon p.151-222 and Les Flagellation p.223-252. Also published in English by Carrington in 1898 and 1904 as The Mysteries of Verbena House with the author as Etoniensis [George Augustus Sala?]. Based on the pagination and title, it appears that the first part of this present book may have been previously published by Carrington in 1901 as Les Mysteres de la Maison de la Verveine. However, as I am unable to compare the two books, I cannot be positive. According to Ashbee [Vol.3, pp. 260] the original story was issued in two parts: pages 1-96 were issued in 1881, the remaining pages in 1882, probably by William Lazenby [See Mendes 74-A]. It's also possible that the author is not Sala but James Campbell Reddie [Gibson: p.108].

    Royal 8vo. x + 240pp. Title page printed in orange and black with a decorative orange border.

    This is the French translation of Memories of a Russian Ballet Girl, published by Carrington in 1901.

Previously published in 1892 by Brancart [under the imprint "sous les gleries du Palais Royal"] as Memoires d'une Danseuse Russe written by E.D. Although Desjardins may be a pseudonym used by Edmund Dumoulin, Mendes argues in his notes to 137-A that Dumoulin and Desjardins may in fact be two different people, with Desjardins the author of flagellation themed novels. Only these E.D./Desjardin texts were translated into English.

Later re-published in 3 volumes by Hirsch in 1903 [See Mendes: 138-B]. Although Desjardins may be a pseudonym used by Edmund Dumoulin, Mendes argues in his notes to 137-A that Dumoulin and Desjardins may in fact be two different people, with Desjardins the author of flagellation themed novels. Only these E.D./Desjardin texts were translated into English.

This work has been reprinted numerious times since the first volume was published in c.1748, partially based on the earliest found advertisement in the General Advertiser, Nov. 21, 1748. The second volume appears to have been first published in c. 1749, again partially based on the earliest found advertisement in the General Advertiser, Feb. 14-16, 1749. The two volumes were published as Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, London: Printed for G. Fenton [Fenton Griffiths] in the Strand, MDCCXLIX. [Foxon, David. Libertin Literature in England 1660-1745. p. 52-63].

    Carrington published the French translation clandestinely as En Virginie in 1901, which retains the flagellation scenes but expurgates all the sexual descriptions. The Memoirs of Dolly Morton was published again by Carrington in 1904 [see entry below]. There is also an edition with a 1904 date but which Mendes dates at c.1912; possibly published by Carrington or Roberts and Dardaillon. This work was also published by Jean Fort under his imprint Collection des Orties Blanches in c.1917 as Dolly Morton with author as Donovan Kipps, illustrated with 7 plates by Louis Malteste; and again as The Memoirs of Dolly Morton in c.1928, which is a reprint of Carrington's En Virginie.

  23. MEMOIRS OF DOLLY MORTON, THE

    The Memoirs of Dolly Morton. Philadelphia: Society of Private Bibliophiles [done in red gothic print], 1904.

    8vo. 303pp. Title page framed in red. 10 half-tone steel engravings and numerous text illustrations (mainly head and tail pieces). Printed on smooth wove paper.

    The engravings are signed G.D. [i.e. G. Dola]. The text illustrations were first used in Carrington's Le Beau Negre, published in 1902 [Mendes: 160-A]. The author has been falsely attributed to Hugues Rebell [Georges Grassal] and/or Jean de Villiot, which is actually a collective name/pseudonym. It has been suggested that the author is Hector France [Mendes: 160-A]. Carrington published the French translation clandestinely as En Virginie in 1901, which retains the flagellation scenes but expurgates all the sexual descriptions. The Memoirs of Dolly Morton was published again by Carrington in 1899. There is also an edition with a 1904 date but which Mendes dates at c.1912; possibly published by Carrington or Roberts and Dardaillon. This work was also published by Jean Fort under his imprint Collection des Orties Blanches in c.1917 as Dolly Morton with author as Donovan Kipps, illustrated with 7 plates Louis Malteste; and again as The Memoirs of Dolly Morton in c.1928, which is a reprint of Carrington's En Virginie.

Carrington also republished this work in 1904 as La Maison de la Verveine. 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].

Otherwise, this edition conforms to the entry above. I believe one, if not all, the illustrations are the same that are tipped-in to "Home Discipline".

    27cm. [8] 120pp.

    Before you say anything...The imprint of Charles Carrington is from a label pasted over the original imprint. It's possible that Carrington bought sheets of the book and rather than print up a new first signature, pasted on the label. Although until now no one was aware that Carrington ever did this, see also Flagellation and the Flagellants by Rev. Cooper [James Bertram Glass], which also has a Carrington label pasted over the original imprint [located at UC Santa Barbara]. Not listed in Mason, unless, Carrington [if true] issued this book after 1914. Osrac was first published in London by Hermes Press in 1905. Keystone Press also produced an edition in 1905 but it was never published.
