Book Description Olympia Press, Paris, 1954. Original Wraps. First English Language Edition. Light shelf/edge wear, light wear at head and tail, closed spits at spine, sun at spine and edges of wraps, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Purple paper wrappers, black ink lettering. 8vo. 187pp. "Not to be introduced into the U.K. or the U.S.A." The scarce first edition in purple wraps of the unauthorised first English translation, rushed to appear the same time as the first French edition. "In February 1955, Story of O won the French literature prize Prix des Deux Magots, although this did not prevent the French authorities from bringing obscenity charges against the publisher. The charges were rejected by the courts, but a publicity ban was imposed for a number of years. The first English edition was published by Olympia Press in 1965. Eliot Fremont-Smith (of The New York Times) called its publishing "a significant event". According to an article by Geraldine Bedell,[1] published in The Observer on Sunday 24 July 2004, "Pauline Réage, the author, was a pseudonym, and many people thought that the book could only have been written by a man. The writer's true identity was not revealed until 10 years ago, when, in an interview with John de St Jorre, a British journalist and some-time foreign correspondent of The Observer, an impeccably dressed 86-year-old intellectual called Dominique Aury acknowledged that the fantasies of castles, masks and debauchery were hers." According to several other sources, however, Dominique Aury was itself a pseudonym of Anne Cécile Desclos, born 23 September 1907 in Rochefort-sur-Mer, France, and deceased 26 April 1998 (at age 90) in Paris, France. The Grove Press edition (US, 1965) was translated by publisher Richard Seaver (who had lived in France for many years) under the pseudonym Sabine d'Estree." Very Good [Textblock Near Fine].
