Alta-Glamour Inc.
(Seattle, WA, U.S.A.)

Book Description The Odyssey Press, London, 1970. 8vo. pp. [viii]+239. Mr. Fryer has here provided a useful cross-section of Asbee's three-volume bibliography of erotica, with the emphasis on English works. In addition, there is a fascinating and well-researched biography of Ashbee, the fullest to date, and hitherto unpublished notes culled from Ashbeeís own working copies of his bibliographies (preserved in the British Library) are given where appropriate. There is a checklist of works noticed by Ashbee but excluded from the present volume. A first class compromise for those unable to afford the full three-volume work. Boards in price-clipped dust jacket. Light shelfwear. Very good. Seller Inventory # 83637

Book Description Odyssey Press, London, first edition, 1970, 1970. Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, [4], 239 pp. From the blurb: "For far too many years the three volume, descriptive bibliography of erotic and pornographic literature by Henry Spencer Ashbee has remained, because of its rarity, length and price, out of reach of precisely those readers and collectors for whom it must be an indispensable work of reference and amusement. This single volume edition of Ashbee omits only those titles in Latin, Spanish and German - together with a few in other languages - which can nowadays be considered for all common purposes as of little remaining interest. It retains the entire corpus of the most interesting and rare of the Victorian contributions to erotic literature, together with Ashbee's descriptions of earlier books and other curiosa, such as his detailed descriptions of Rowlandson's obscene prints. For the sake of bookmen, moreover, there is a check-list of all the titles originally included by Ashbee, indicating those of which his descriptions have been omitted, together with a full index. Peter Fryer's Introduction forms a detailed and scholarly conspectus not only of Ashbee's work, but of others for which he is little known. He produces, for the first time, a bibliography of all Ashbee's writings, together with all known facts on his life and his Will." Bookplate and name and date on front pastedown endpaper, otherwise Very Good.in used, price-clipped and slightly torn dustwrapper. Seller Inventory # ABE-03512
