Prélude Charnel

Robert Sermaise. [c.1957]
16 drawings by Paul Emile Becat.

Loose preliminary erotic drawings (with extra wide margins) for Sermaise's Prélude Charnel; although to the best of our knowledge were never used. It appears Edouard Chimot's drawings were used instead in the 1957 edition. This title has been reprinted many times. In addition to Chimot, earlier editions have illustrations by Suzanne Ballivet (1947), and Jean-Albert Carlotti (1953).

Many thanks to Georges Pironet for these drawings!
