About this Item: The Kamashastra Society, Paris and Benares, 1907. Quarter Calf. Condition: Very Good. This is a 1907 pirated version of the Burton 1886 translation. And an exuberant pirate edition it is, with two color printing, the claim that it is limited to 1,000 copies for subscribers only ("not sold to the book-trade,") and that it was to be "The First of Three Volumes" -- an odd example of publisher optimism, given that The Perfumed Garden is a short work that easily fits into one book. Binding of quarter leather with decorative endpapers. The original cover of soft textured wraps is bound-in. The interior of this book is Very Good Plus: bright, unmarked, and, in many respects, fresh. The exterior is Good: a little tired with some rubs and a little but of loss. We ship daily. Out to you w/tracking. Seller Inventory # 5000050512385

About this Item: Paris: Librairie "Astra", [c.1950], 1950. Octavo. Original tan light card wrappers printed in red and black. A little fraying to spine-ends, a few very faint marks to covers, contents browned. A very good copy. Later Paris edition of "the best known work of Arabic erotica in the West" (Encyclopaedia of Arabic Literature, vol. 2, p. 572), probably printed to circumvent British obscenity laws: on the rear wrapper is printed "Not to be sold in England or U. S. A.". The text was originally written sometime in the 15th century for the Hafsid vizier of Tunis, and made famous by Sir Richard F. Burton's 1886 English translation. Seller Inventory # 121253

About this Item: Cosmopoli â¦. for the Kama Shastra Society of London ⦠and for Private circulation only, 1886., London:, 1886. 8vo. xv, 256 pp. Reprints the 'appendix' (to the Autograph edition of 1876). Publisher's parchment covered beveled boards, gilt stamped borders, gilt spine title, sp. edges ruled; some discoloration to the spine, rubbed, else a solid, very good + copy. Burton's translation is the first English translation, preceded only by a French translation, apparently in an edition of 25 copies issued in 1876. There are two issues also of the 1886, one using the spelling of "Cheikh" (as in this copy) and the other "sheikh," this latter printed in violet ink. It was this text Burton had in manuscript at his death, that he was reediting and that Penzer records as being destroyed by Burton's widow. From the introductory note: "The 'Perfumed Garden' was translated into French before the year 1850, by a Staff Officer of the French army in Algeria. An autograph edition, printed in the italic character, was printed in 1876, but, as only twenty-five copies are said to have been made, the book is both rare and costly. An admirable reprint has, however, been recently issued in Paris, with the translator's notes and remarks, revised and corrected by the light of the fuller knowledge of Algeria which has been acquired since the translation was made. From that last edition the present translation (an exact and literal one) has been made, and it is the first time that the work, -one of the most remarkable of its kind, -has appeared in the English language." "The work is an expanded version of the translation [Burton] had made in 1886, the expansion probably taking the form of more lengthy annotation. While we can never know the precise contents of the 'anthropological notes', the nature of the work itself, a sixteenth-century manual of Arab erotology, said to have been written by one 'Sheikh Nefzawi' ⦠Ostensibly it is a book of sexual advice and information, sprinkled with Arabic versions of old wives' tales." â" Farwell p. 400. That this is a work of erotica is at once evident from the contents: (for example) Relating to the act of generation; Concerning everything this is favourable to the act of coition; Of matters which are injurious in the Act of Generation; The Sundry Names given to the Sexual Organs of Women; Concerning the Organs of Generation of Animals; On the Deceits and Treacheries of Women; Description of the Uterus of Sterile Women, and Treatment of the same; Concerning Medicines which Provoke Abortion; Concerning the Cause of Impotence in Men; Prescriptions for increasing the Dimensions of Small Members, and for them splendid, etc. Casada 89; Penzer pp. 173-4. See: Byron Farwell, Burton, (1988), pp. 400-1. Seller Inventory # ME1054
