ANONYMOUS. The Story of a Virgin. [Paris 1899]. 16pp.


A curious Victorian-era erotic pamphlet detailing the exploits of a twelve year old girl and her incestuous relationship with her father. The tale is set on a Southern plantation with twelve slaves, some of whom are eventually led into the erotic entangle- ments of young Maud. The story ends with her father engaged in carnal intercourse with her and one of the male slaves simultane- ously.

BOTTO, Antonio (Fernando Pessoa, trans). Songs. NP: ND (1948). 171pp.


The first appearance in English of Botto's celebrated work, translated by his friend Fernando Pessoa in 1933, but first published in this edition. Botto had moved to Brazil in 1947 and attempted to support himself with his writings, but struggled financially. He may have financed the production of the book himself, as it bears no indication of a publisher. Warmly inscribed by Botto to Francisco Enrique Lopez on front endpaper. There is no indication of the size of this printing, but it was undoubtedly small and the book is quite rare (despite Botto’s amusing notation that this is copy 546,375.) There are several simple line drawings illustrating the text, including the frontispiece, which appear to be by Almada Negreiros.

Very good in original lightly spotted wrappers and endpapers. Rare. $1,800.

Good is somewhat worn wrappers. $75.

CARPENTER, Edward. Towards Democracy. Manchester & London: John Heywood (1883).


The first edition of Carpenter's most famous work, the epic poem cycle which went through numerous editions. Edward Carpenter (1844-1919) was an English socialist poet, philosopher, anthologist and early LGBT activist. A leading figure in the late 19th and early 20th century Britain, he was instrumental in the foundation of the Fabian Society and was a close friend of Walt Whitman and Rabindranath Tagore.

Lancelot Ridley Phelps, a fellow of Oriel College, and Vice-Principal of St. Mary Hall, Oxford with his ink ownership signature on front free endpaper, dated 1897 (above that of the classical scholar Roger Mynors, dated 1938). Loosely inserted is an A.L.S. to Phelps from fellow Uranian J H Hallard, which reads, in part: 'If you look at p. 126. and[?] p. 127 - of Mr. Cory's Letters, you will understand how I value the memory of them for aye.

D'ANNUNZO, Gabriele (Romaine Brooks). Le Feu. Paris: Callman-Levy (c. 1910).


The French edition of d'Annunzio's work, with a long and sincere dedication to his onetime lover, Romaine Brooks.

Around 1909, Brooks and d’Annunzio met at a dinner given by an artist friend who was famous for his colorful posters and paintings. D’Annunzio commented that much more can be expressed without any color at all, and this prompted Brooks to invite him to see her work. Thus began a complicated friendship that lasted for nearly three decades and had a profound impact on Brooks’s art. She saw him as a martyred artist, another lapidé; he wrote poems based on her works and called her "the most profound and wise orchestrator of grays in modern painting". They spent the summer of 1910 in a villa on the coast of France, in a romantic interlude that was disrupted when D'Annunzio's jealous ex-mistress arrived in town. Their friendship remained strong throughout D'Annunzio's life and she painted his portrait in 1912.

Very good in original wrappers, rebound in a full morocco signed binding, gilt top edge, gilt titling, very light scuffs, laid into a marbled paper slipcase. $4,500.

Light wear to covers. Rare. $650.

ELLIS, Havelock. A Note on the Bedborough Trial. London: University Press (1898.) 23pp.


A synopsis of the notorious Bedborough Trial, which involved the publication of the first edition of Sexual Inversion authored by Eliis and John Addington Symonds. When it was published, Sexual Inversion became not only the first medical textbook in English on the topic of homosexuality, but also one of the first publications (along with works by Edward Carpenter) to champion a more dispassionate and sympathetic approach to the legal, social and ethical aspects of the topic in late Victorian Britain. Ellis describes the context of the lawsuit brought against the bookseller Bedborough and includes a number of relevant and laudatory reviews of the book in an appendix. Good in browned wrappers, glue residue on spine, covers a bit loose. Rare. $475.

ESCUDERO, Gonzalo. Hélices de huracán y de sol. Madrid: [Compañía Ibero Americana de Publicaciones] (1933). 105pp.


Escudero was an Ecuadorian poet and diplomat. Good in decorative wrappers, with a sexually provocative inscription to a friend on endpaper. $150.

FACUNDO (Cuéllar, José Tomás de). Historia De Chucho El Ninfo. Barcelona: Tipo-Litografía De Hermenegildo Miralles 19.

(1890). 2 vols.

The first novel published in Mexico with a homosexual theme. Part of the La Linterna Magica series, the story about the life and travails of an effeminate homosexual man (a "chicken"), Chucho is portrayed as a stereotypical nineteenth-century Mexican dandy. The adventures of the protagonist were intended to illustrate the social breakdown caused by lack of education, the perceived deterioration of Mexican families and the pernicious influence of foreign ideas in the aftermath of the brief French occupation of the country. The rambling novel is careful not to offend readers (or the printer) with the use of explicit references to homosexual acts, but use of "race ninfea" (fairy race) or "mujerucos" left no reader unclear about the author's intent to deride homosexuals.

The book originally appeared in 1871 and this is the second appearance, with new illustrations by José María Villasana.

See Monsiváis, Carlos. "Los 41 y la gran redada". Letras Libres. 2002; Irwin, R. The Famous 41: Sexuality and Social Control in Mexico @140- 42. Good in rather worn contemporary bindings, internally very good. $625.

FELLOWES, Daisy. Sunday or a Working Girl's Lament. Monaco: Imprimerie A. Chene (1930). sm. 4to. 74pp.


An amusing prose poem by the ultra-chic Mrs. Reginald Fellowes (neé Marguerite Décazes), a "feminine dictator of impenetrable hardness," according to Sir Harold Acton. Fellowes traveled in very fashionable circles of the period and was known, among other things, for being the best dressed woman in the world.

Seventy four leaves printed on rectos only, along with three attractive color vignettes. One of only 200 numbered copies printed, this is #52, inscribed by the author. Very good in illustrated boards, covers a little sunned, corners slightly bumped.


FERSEN (Jacques d'Adelswärd). L’Hymnaire d’Adonis: à la façon de M. le marquis de Sade. Paris: Leon Vanier [1902]. 276pp.


One of the author’s earliest collections of poetry, published when he was 22. According to scholar Will Ogrinc, the collection “swarms with young blond boys” and contains many poems directly referring to Jacques’ own school years where such contacts and meditations as are described in “Crépuscule” (Twilight), “Rêve triste” (Gloomy dream), and “Adieu Mièvre” (Frisky farewell) to have come to light, they would no doubt have led to the immediate expulsion of those involved.” Very good in, original wrappers present, occasional light foxing, pages a bit browned. Uncommon. $1,200.

1909). #3,4,5,6.

Fersen contributes a poem entitled “Tes Yeux…” to this edition of Marinetti's magazine of futurism. He also contributed two other short works, including a letter in which he pledges his allegiance to the cause: “I adhere to the principles of Futurism which will disengage man of all his slavery....Let us abandon the twilights, the graveyards, the museums or the legends, in favour of the Nativities, the PROGRESS, the holy FORCE, and LIFE!” A number of other prominent writes contributed to this issue, including Robert de Montesquiou, Charles Etienne, Ruben Dario, Henri de Regnier, Robert Scheffer (“Visions de Minuit,” dedicated to “J. de Fersen.”) and numerous others.
