  • The Love Books of Ovid – Illustrated by Jean de Bosschere – 1925 – Super Copy

    The Love Books of Ovid – Illustrated by Jean de Bosschere – 1925 – Super Copy

    Full title … “The Love Books of Ovid being the Amores [The Loves], Ars Amatoria [The Art of Love], Remedia Amoris [The Cure for Love] and Medicamina Faciei Femineae [Women’s Facial Cosmetics] of Publius Ovidus Naso translated out of the Latin by J. Lewis May”.

    With the extravagant illustrations of the great Jean De Bosschere, Voyagers favourite book illustrator of all time.

    Published by the Bodley Head in 1925 number 1583 of a limited edition of 3000. Large octavo (24cm by 16cm). This is the finest copy we have seen partly because we have the original dust jacket which is as scarce as hen’s teeth. The beautiful blue covers with lavish gilt work were also designed by Bosschere. The many illustrations of which several are in striking colour are a little naughty but oh so natural to the stories of Publius Ovidious.

    Best copy of The Love Book – superbly illustrated

    The Old Man Young Again or Age-Rejuvenescence in the Power of Concuspiscence … Literally Translated from the Arabic by an English “Bohemian” – Kitab Ruju’a as-Shaykh ila Sabah Fi-l-Kuwwat ‘ala-l-Bah

    Published Montamartre, Paris by Charles Carrington 1898. Publisher of many things naughty in the naughty 1890’s. The work described as … privately printed for a small number of Amateurs and Bibliophiles, is strictly limited to Five Hundred numbered copies on Papier de Hollande. The present copy is No 437.

    Large octavo, 265 pages, top edge gilt, rich maroon endpapers, black cloth covered boards, bevelled and decorated in gilt. Decoration above Chapter headings and some romantic, not crude, illustrations.

    A slightly strangely constructed book in three parts. The First deals with the age and authorship of the Book, Arabian Medical Science; the Strength of Male Copulation and the various kinds of Impotence and Degrees of Virility and the Power of Erection etc. The Second the formation of the yard and testicles; evils from over-indulgence; ill effect of excessive coition and things to take; the advantages (many) of copulation … medicines, oils etc to improve various matters. The Third the Romance of the Genital Instinct; Aphrodisiacs and then some unmentionables.

    For those of suitable age that may be shocked the dedications is worthy … Inscribed to the Memory of the late Sir Richard F. Burton, whose works suggested, and whose labours aided me in my task of making this English version of a work, which, whatever may be thought of it today, was not deemed obscene by the people in whose generation it appeared.

He attended his office in the morning to deal with overnight orders and was usually done by 10am. He spent the rest of the day, at auctions collecting all sorts of things … his main interest being books, bookplates, erotica etc … most of his bookplates were of naked women … he was known to quip “I like them that way”.
