About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: An Oxford Thesis on Love: In Which L. ...

Publisher: By the Author, Taos, New Mexico

Publication Date: 1938

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: Very Good+


Original wraps, printed label mounted to front cover; 4to; stab binding bound with thin rope, pp. 122, typed on the recto only, plus hand-colored lithograph frontispiece and 12 plates, b/w photographs (sepia or b/w silver gelatin prints) tipped-onto black paper (a few tasteful nudes, but mostly close-ups of vaginas). The author's note reveals that he mimeographed the text block himself, printed the photographs himself, that the lithograph "was pulled in the art department of a friendly colleague but colored in the safer confines of the author's study," and only the slipcase was commercially manufactured (by a match factory). Spine tips and front cover a little chipped and wrinkled, otherwise fine, in lightly worn slipcase. Text block and images are in fine condition. An anonymous man offers details of his sexual exploits. Certainly, a unique volume -- you don't see this every day. Rare. Limited Edition of 100 Copies "Done Into a Book by the Hand of the Author".
