Item Description: Olympia Press, Paris, 1959. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. Fourth Printing. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Explicit erotic novel about a man's intimate adventures with girls in India, Africa, Japan & China by Scottish author Alexander Trocchi posing as Frank Harris. "I had pinioned her hands on either side to the floor so that she lay as though crucified below me." Slight fracture to spine otherwise a fine copy. Trocchi was born in Glasgow to a Scottish mother and Italian father. After working as a seaman on the Murmansk convoys, he attended University of Glasgow. On graduation he obtained a traveling grant that enabled him to relocate to continental Europe. In the early 1950s, he lived in Paris and edited the literary magazine Merlin, which published Henry Miller, Samuel Beckett, Christopher Logue, and Pablo Neruda, amongst others. Although not published in Merlin, American writer Terry Southern, who lived in Paris from 1948-1952, became a close friend of both Trocchi and his colleague Richard Seaver, and the three later co-edited the anthology Writers In Revolt (1962). Though established somewhat in rivalry with the Paris Review, George Plimpton also had served on Merlin's editorial board. Trocchi claimed that this journal came to an end when the US State Department canceled its many subscriptions in protest over an article by Jean-Paul Sartre praising the homoeroticism of Jean Genet. Maurice Girodias published most of Trocchi's novels through Olympia Press, often written under pen names, such as Frances Lengel and Carmencita de las Lunas. Girodias also published My Life and Loves: Fifth Volume, which purported to be the final volume of the autobiography of Irish writer Frank Harris. However, though based on autobiographical material by Harris, the book was heavily edited and rewritten by Trocchi. Bookseller Inventory # 020469

Item Description: The Obelisk Press/The Olympia Press, Paris, 1954. Five volumes, light grey wrappers printed in red and black, small 8vo., (Fifth vol. is sage green wrappers, tall 12mo.). Fifth Obelisk edition; the fifth vol. is the first printing, ghosted or creatively edited by Alexander Trocchi for the Olympia Press Traveller's Companion series, being No. 10. The shockingly bad and preposterous autohagiography of a egoist, notorious in its day for its (now tame) sex scenes and gratuitus name dropping. It ruined his already dubious reputation and is the only book of his remembered today. Seldom offered with the fifth (Olympia Press) volume. But for a mild stain to the rear wrapper of vol. four, this is a very nice, mildly soiled and lightly edgeworn set, in archival mylar. Bookseller Inventory # 001639
