The Garden of Caresses.

Hermes, Gertrude (illus.)

(London: Golden Cockerel Press, 1934). From an edition of 275 copies, this is one of approximately twenty-five specially bound as a scarce deluxe edition, with an extra suite of six erotic engravings. Eight copper-engraved chapter headpieces by Gertrude Hermes evoke the sensuousness and rhythm of the text. Translated from the Arabic into French by Franz Toussaint and thence into English by Christopher Sanford.

Octavo. 91pp. Few exterior rubbings, else a fine, crisp copy in full vellum, spine and cover gilt-stamped. The extra suite is held in a pocket affixed to the rear board. T.e.g. Item #30055

(Chanticleer 100).

Price: $3,500.00
