Two erotic tales, these are French classics from the 1920s making their first appearance in English, edited and translated by the American journalist and author, Zalin Grant. The book contains 28 drawings by the noted French illustrator, Jean Dulac. It also contains--making a first appearance in the U.S.--12 erotic watercolors by Gerda Wegener, well-known portrait painter, in a full color insert. Since they were done by a woman, these erotic watercolors are some of the most sought-after works of erotica in the world. One tale is written by a woman, the other by a woman (Renee Dunan), and this considered the first modern erotic work (1926) by a self-proclaimed "feminist." This is a 6 x 9 hardcover, with a film laminated dust jacket, done on 60 pound paper with an eighty pound glossy insert.
