In this anthology, 'erotica' is a comprehensive term for bawdy, obscene, salacious, pornographic and ribald works including, indeed featuring, humour and satire that employ sexual elements.
Flagellation and sadomasochism are recurring themes. They are activities whose effect can be shocking, but whose occurrence pervades our selections, most often in the context of love and affection.

The entirety in incredibly fine clean condition. Own the Finest. An exceptional copy in the original boards, with the edges untrimmed. A splendid association copy from the library of Major Roger Alden. He fought at Germantown in October , and spent the winter at Valley Forge.
He rose through the ranks, ultimately serving as aide-de camp, with the brevet rank of Major, to Brigadier General Jedediah Huntington.
After the war Alden was elected deputy secretary of the Continental Congress, became deputy secretary of Foreign Affairs under Washington, and was the man entrusted with the original Constitution after its signing. Two years later, Alden was again entrusted with the great state papers, this time including the Declaration of Independence.
Roger Alden, the late Deputy Secretary of Congress; who is requested to take charge of them until farther directions shall be given. Those papers, which more properly appertain to the office of Foreign Affairs, are under the superintendence of Mr. Jay, who has been so obliging as to continue his good offices, and they are in the immediate charge of Mr.

A very good copy. This is one of the earliest copies inscribed by Joyce: under his onerous contract with Grant Richards, he was obliged to purchase copies of the book himself, and this copy would have been among the first batch sent out from London to the author after the official publication date, 15 June. Trieste was then in the grip of tight postal restrictions, with the Great War only days away, and foreigners in particular were subject to customs inspections and postal delays.
Joyce mentions these a number of times in his letters around this date. Rare: just three inscribed copies of Dubliners appear in auction records since , of which only one other was inscribed in the month of publication the other two were signed by Joyce much later, in the late s. Following Ellman, the traditional wisdom has been that Joyce requested Grant Richards to print the leaflet for him, but this is extremely unlikely.
There is no contact address given for Elkin Mathews; the typography and paper size are both characteristically Italian, rather than English; and the punctuation is eccentric at a time when Joyce was mulling over his reinvention of punctuation for Portrait. The press release is unrecorded as an original Joyce item, though, as it was clearly assembled from press cuttings and published by Joyce, it rightly belongs in the bibliography.
Red morocco backed folding-case. A tall and very fresh copy. Engraved portrait of Shakespeare by Martin Droeshout third state on the title-page, woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces, text printed in two columns within rules. This is the edition of which William Prynne complained that it was printed on best crown paper. It is estimated that the original edition was of 1, copies, shared between the five publishers listed in the colophon, all of whom were proprietors of rights to one or more of the plays.
Hill at AbeBooks. The rarity of this book is well-known: it is revealing that Castiglioni, Choulant, and Garrison all cite the edition as the first printing. A very fine copy with all edges uncut and preserved in a slipcase. Two contemporary annotators have made a number of neat comments in the wide margins. This copy was clearly removed from a sammelband. The final four leaves have some worming, becoming increasingly more pronounced but not at all offensive touching the text of the final three leaves. As a celebrated cornerstone of the library at Stowe House, it was prominently featured in a large portrait of Dr.
John Morecroft an early Reformer and previous owner.
