Description:

1/2490. Large octavo. 191, [11]pp. Half blue calf over marbled paper covered boards with gold lettering on spine. Raised bands. Marbled endpapers. Original illustrated wrappers bound in. Color frontispiece. Title page in blue and black lettering. Vignette on title. Les Chansons de Bilitis (The Songs of Bilitis) is a collection of erotic poetry by Pierre Louys originally published in Paris in 1894. The book's sensual poems are in the manner of Sappho; the introduction claims they were found on the walls of a tomb in Cyprus, written by a woman of Ancient Greece called Bilitis, a courtesan and contemporary of Sappho, to whose 'life' Louys dedicated a small section of his book. On publication, the volume deceived even the most expert of scholars. Though the poems were actually clever fabulations, authored by Louys himself, they are still considered important literature. The Songs of Bilitis was praised as a fount of elegant sensuality and refined style, even more extraordinary for the author's compassionate portrayal of lesbian (and female in general) sexuality. This work is splendidly illustrated throughout with 10 striking color illustrations by Maurice Leroy. One of 2490 copies on Vélin paper, of which this is No.728. Some rubbing at head and tail of spine and along edges of binding. Text in French. Binding in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 36893
