About this Item

155p., illustrations, text in French, hinge starting at frontis-title page otherwise very good first illustrated edition (though few of the illustrations suggest the book's gay content) in original green cloth boards titled and decorated in black. Sous-offs "caused a great scandal when it appeared. An 'indelicate and unpatriotic' novel about military life, it includes one character, Lapr?votte, a sodomite, who is caught in Le Havre with a group of seven boys. It was prodeeded against for indecency ('outrage aux moeurs'), and the defendants were acquitted in March 1890." -- Patrick Pollard, Andr? Gide: Homosexual Moralist, Yale University Press, 1991).
