"In 1680 an erotic work was published, entitled Aloysiæ Sigeæ Toletanæ satyra sotadica de arcanis amoris et veneris: Aloysia hispanice scripsit: latinitate donavit J. Meursius. The title translates as "Luisa Sigea Toledana's Sotadic satire, on the secrets of love and sex; Luisa wrote it in Spanish; it has here been translated into Latin by J. Meursius." Johannes Meursius (1579 – 1639) was a Dutch classical scholar and antiquary. "Sotadic" refers to Sotades, the 3rd-century BC Greek poet who was the chief representative of a group of writers of obscene, and sometimes pederastic, satirical poetry.This is widely considered the first-ever fully pornographic work written in Latin, and it contains among other things a defense of tribadism (i.e. lesbianism). The attribution to Sigea (as well as the attribution to Meursius) was a hoax, as was first demonstrated by Bruno Lavignini in his edition of the poem (Italy, 1905). It is believed that the true author was the Frenchman Nicolas Chorier."; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall

vi, 290, 316 pp and 244, 200 pp. A very scarce edition - not in OCLC - with 250 numbered letters, plus the "Derniere Lettre" The printing attribution is "Imprime a la Haie.

Boards are smooth, some rubbing at the corners and joints, spine top on Vol. I is pulled, spine cover starting to lift a bit on Vol. II but still attractive and holding together.

The term retifism for shoe fetishism was named after him and he was an enemy of the Marquis de Sade. Le Paysan Perverti was a bit hit, an "erotic novel with a moral purpose."; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall

Cathechisme Libertin a l'usage de Filles de Joie et Des Jeunes Demoiselles qui se Decident a Embrasser cette Profession, Theroigne, Mlle; Anne-Josephe Theroigne de Mericourt
4 Theroigne, Mlle; Anne-Josephe Theroigne de Mericourt Cathechisme Libertin a l'usage de Filles de Joie et Des Jeunes Demoiselles qui se Decident a Embrasser cette Profession
Paris Serge Dummoulin 1792 Later Printing Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
55 pp. Although the title page says 1792, it is printed after 1799 which is referenced in the foreword, probably a mid 1800s reprint. Entirely in French. 3/4 brown leather with red marbled boards. Spine covering perished. Interior clean and unmarked. A scarce variant printing with the title spelled Cathechisme instead of Catechisme. Not in Worldcat. A handbook for prostitutes, with practical advice on how to enter the profession and how to do the work. Whether the book was actually written by Theroigne is unclear -- she was a rebel, with a "sulfurous reputation," a leader in the French Revolution who was driven to insanity. It seems very likely that her name was attached to this frankly pornographic work to embarrass her and her supporters. Very interesting little book. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 55 pages
