Item Description: [London] 'Printed for Private Circulation only', 1887. Not a Carrington imprint, but a popular pirate edition: a poor translation of the 1882 Liseux French text. Carrington, in describing his own scholarly edition, derides it in his catalogue Forbidden Books (1902, p. 58) saying that the Liseux edition 'was immediately knocked into horrible English, and the French translation, which was bad, was rendered more faulty by its hurried transformation, when it was compressed into one dear little volume, and hawked about London in 1887.'Carrington published some 300 titles (some using his own name and others using false imprints, as here) mainly in Paris where he lived from about 1894 until 1907, selling books from a shop in the Faubourg Montmartre. He notably printed a number of works by Oscar Wilde when few other publishers would risk implication in Wilde's downfall and, besides outright pornography, he printed a number of editions of classical and oriental authors and important works on the psychology of sex. In 1907 he was deported from France for consistently publishing and selling literature "of a very obscene and vulgar character". He continued his publishing business in Brussels before returning to Paris in 1912. By 1920 Carrington was blind from the effects of advanced syphilis, being admitted to the mental hospital at Ivry, south of Paris, where he died in 1921. 8vo (181 × 122 mm), pp. [4], vii, [1], 178. Title printed in red and black, numerous ornaments to text. Title slightly glue stained. Early purple half morocco gilt, panelled spine gilt, headed 'Biblioteca Curiosa'. Circular inkstamp of Charles S. Dixwell (1868-1934) to front pastedown. Spine faded, but a very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 5211

Item Description: Privately Printed, Manchester, 1884. Quarter Leather. Book Condition: Very Good Minus. First Edition in English. Complete: Volume I & Volume II in quarter leather bindings. Privately printed for translator Viscount Julian Smithson and Friends, limited to 100 copies ("None of these copies are for sale.") Over 500 pp; 2.5 pounds. Bright, unmarked, and very pleasant interiors; leaves are textured, toothy stock; partially uncut; a few scattered smudges, some glue residue, and some (now brown) fountain pen ink drips. Decorative headers & footers at chapter breaks. The leather and paper binding is tired with dings and edgewear; tip of one exterior corner is lost; the blue backstrip (spine) with gold print and devices still makes a good impression. The bindings are solid and square. All in all, Good Minus exteriors with Very Good Plus interiors. ABOUT THIS BOOK: Latin and English side-by-side in "an entirely new and strictly exact" translation. Friedrich Karl Forberg (1770-1848) was a Compiler, Scholar, and Geek who assembled an large body of ancient sexual practices from Classical texts. He organized the sexual acts into chapters ("Of Coupulation," "Of Irrumation," "Of Spintrian Postures") Smithson does a rather pretty job of explaining that this is both a testament to the erotic in Classical literature and a sexual manual: "In virtue of the charm, the abundance, the variety of the citations, it is a priceless erotic Anthology; in virtue of the methodical classification of the contents Forberg has adopted, it is a didactic work, -- a veritable Manual." We ship daily. Out to you w/tracking. Bookseller Inventory # 5000050512427

Item Description: Charles Carrington],, 'Manchester One Hundred Copies privately printed for Viscount Julian Smithson M.A. and friends' [Paris, 1884. First edition of this important parallel English, Latin and Greek version. It followed a poor piracy of 1882 badly translated from Liseux's French edition of 1882. Carrington gave a wry veiled account of its publication in his 1902 catalogue, Forbidden Books: 'Were I a bookseller, I do not think I should ever take the trouble to print such a book as I have now before me. Here is a Latin work, full of notes, and bristling with Greek quotations. A most careful and masterly translation has been placed opposite every page of the original text, and it needs no literary critic to see that no one but a real classical scholar-an old Oxford man-could ever have successfully struggled with such a task . The two stout volumes have evidently been printed on the Continent-and for very good and valid reasons, as no English printer would dare to undertake such a work,- therefore each page would have to be submitted to the translator, at least three or four times, foreign compositors working mechanically. Many months would thus pass in wearisome proof-reading, and when at last the hundred copies are struck off, and each man receives his due, what margin of profit awaits the silly bookseller-publisher? He is insulted in every way and laughed at if he dares to wonder that the British Customs seize any copies .'Carrington published some 300 titles (some using his own name and others using false imprints, as here) mainly in Paris where he lived from about 1894 until 1907, selling books from a shop in the Faubourg Montmartre. He notably printed a number of works by Oscar Wilde when few other publishers would risk implication in Wilde's downfall and, besides outright pornography, he printed a number of editions of classical and oriental authors and important works on the psychology of sex. In 1907 he was deported from France for consistently publishing and selling literature "of a very obscene and vulgar character". He continued his publishing business in Brussels before returning to Paris in 1912. By 1920 Carrington was blind from the effects of advanced syphilis, being admitted to the mental hospital at Ivry, south of Paris, where he died in 1921. 2 vols, 8vo (200 × 130 mm), pp. xviii, 261, [1]; [4], 250, [2]. Partially uncut and preserved with the original wrappers in early twentieth-century half morocco, spines attractively gilt with floral tools and onlays, top edge gilt. Inkstamps of Charles S. Dixwell to front free endpapers. An excellent copy. Bookseller Inventory # 5206
