About this Item

8vo. unpaged. An uncredited reissue, published, apparently, c. 1960, of an erotic novel originally put out at New York in 1942 in a mimeographed edition, and credited to one 'Wood C. Lamont.' The author's real name was Robert Sewall. The text of the original edition was changed somewhat from the author's manuscript by Gershon Legman, who had the job of typing the stencils. He disapproved of the flagellation scenes, and replaced them with episodes of his own designing that were more 'normal' in character. An edition conforming more to the author's original text, but truncated, was published in 1944 with the authorship ascribed to 'Bruce Abbott.' This was in turn reprinted in 1970 by Grove Press at New York as The Sign of the Scorpion. This particular version lacks chapter numbers, and the paste-up is a bit rough, with white spaces separating sections. Original printed wrappers; internally side-stapled. Imperfect; wanting the titlepage. Shelfwear and minor creasing. Bookseller Inventory # 7118
