The Voluptuous Night

Paris: Mediterranean Press, 1957

Small octavo, pp. 167. Original stiff paper wrappers. Production fault creasing to foot of spine, causing rear panel of wrapper to be slightly misaligned, but a near fine, unread copy.

First edition.
The title story is a pornographic translation of Vivant Denon's story Point de Lendemain, first published in English in the 1830s. The volume also contains Initiation Inn, by Mary Mark. This copy carries a revised price sticker on the rear panel bearing the name of the Olympia Press, suggesting some degree of co-operation between the Parisian pornographers of the period.

Keywords: Mary Wilson
