One of the many illustrated, 'erotic' classics published during the 1920-30's. This copy is one of two thousand numbered copies. The book was also published in a deluxe edition of 50 copies, with an original erotic sketch on the end paper, and in an addition of 18 copies bound in morocco with the original artwork to one of the illustrations laid inside a clamshell box. The translation, pseudonymously attributed to Charles Young, is also by Alexander King (with the assistance of Jack Borut.)
