Two Flappers in Paris (Venus Library), Cantab, A
1 Cantab, A Two Flappers in Paris (Venus Library)
Grove Press 1969 Hardcover Very Good 
Hardcover in dust jacket. Jacket is lightly rubbed and slightly sunned. No marks or writing in book.

When Jack espies the nubile form of Evelyn staring out across the waves upon the deck of ship bound for France, his rakish predispositions can not keep him from striking up a conversation of the most deliciously suggestive kind. Finding her extremely eager to be educated in the wanton ways of Venus, Jack proposes to abuse his position as British Embassy Diplomat and pose as "Uncle" to the dear girl and her very close friend Nora. This colorfully graphic tale, written pseudonymously during the roaring '20s, will be sure to shock and delight as it did during that infamous decade of decadence.

Opus Pistorum, Miller, Henry
5 Miller, Henry Opus Pistorum
Grove Press 1983 0394533747 / 9780394533742 Hardcover Like New 
First Printing. Grove Press, 1983. Hardcover in dust jacket. 288 pages. No wear, no marks or flaws.

This book is not for the easily offended. The publisher put it this way: "Here one finds Miller's characteristic candor, with, self-mockery, and celebration of the good life. From Marcelle, to Tania, to Alexandra, to Anna . . . we are swept up in his odyssey as he searches, with boyish intensity, for the perfect job, the perfect woman, the perfect experience. Along the way, his profoundly original ideas about art, love, and life shine through like jewels."

Be forewarned. It was published posthumously and was allegedly originally commissioned by a collector of pornography. It is unflinching.

6 Olivia (Dorothy Strachey Bussy) Olivia
Arno Press 1975 0405073828 / 9780405073823 Hardcover Very Good 
Hardcover reprint. This copy has the correct ISBN matching the 1975 Arno Press reprint of the 1949 original. 135 pages. No marks or writing in book. Bound in sturdy cloth covered boards. The author took her pen name from the title of her own book, which is largely autobiographical. The author was Dorothy Strachey Bussey, a fringe associate of the Bloomsbury Group, of which her brother Lytton Strachey was a founding member. Her novel was originally published by The Hogarth Press founded by Leonard and Virginia Woolf, and is about her experience as a student at Les Ruches - a French finishing school for girls - describing the protagonist's crush on the headmistress Mlle. Julie (i.e., Madame Marie Souvestre). Bussy later taught Shakespeare at Allenswood in England, where Souvestre relocated. This reprint was published by Arno Press as a volume in their multi-volume Homosexuality collection. Light rubbing to covers; otherwise Fine condition.
