About this Item

HB DJ 1st thus. Illustrated printed glossy DJ. Black cloth boards, gilt titles front + spine. See my pic. 21.8 x 15.3cm. 113 pages. Cover illust by Sardax. Text b/w illustrations by a former pupil. First written in 1924, before it could be published, all known copies were seized and destroyed. This edition is the first-ever publication of what has been described as a 'Flagellation Cookbook' - the philiosophy, equipment and techniques for the successful administration of physical discipline to males by females. The author is thought to be Alice Kerr-Sutherland, a notorious Anglo-Scottish governess of the early years of the 1900s, whose literary aspirations where encouraged by her close friend, publisher Gerald Hamer, believed to have illustrated the work in collaboration with her. The Introduction reveals the strange story of the book's publication, prosecution & subsequent rediscovery by Delectus. Condition: Slight scuffing to top edge of DJ, minor rub DJ bottom corner tips. Boards VG colour, minor top/bottom spine, corner rub. Internally like new. Bookseller Inventory # 001535
