Love: A Passion.

Self-published, nd [circa 1920]. Unique. Original Wraps. Full sheets, mimeo printed (recto only). As this came from a small collection of an early erotica printer, we suspect that this was likely a final draft that was subsequently printed...though we find no evidence of publication.
Early mimeo sexually explicit series. It is difficult to find these early, mimeo examples of sexually explicit prose and, for all the usual reasons, it is harder still to find complete multi-volume sets. Poorly printed, poorly bound, and of subject matter that was often disposed of rather than tended to, they seldom pass the test of time. This is especially true of these early, 'full sized sheet' copies, with a relatively small number of examples in various collections. As printed illustration was beyond the technology used, these are illustrated with four b/w photographs in each volume. Very Good in Wraps. Light shelf/edge wear, a few small, closed tears at the edges of the wrapper, light even toning, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Grey wrappers, post bound. 4to. 25pp. Item #10492
