Paris: Bibliotheque des Curieux, 1912. Large octavo. Modern cloth, gilt label. Frontis and plates. Marbled pastedowns laid in (evidently this was an unfinished binding exercise), but a good copy, without wrappers. Later impression of this important edition of de Sade's selected works, annotated with an introduction and bibliography by Apollinaire. Issued in the notable series, "Les Maitres de l'Amour," this collection provided the only generally available text for many years. De Sade's influence on the literature of the next decades was significant, and as Apollinaire prophetically commented, "this man who appeared to be of no importance through the whole of the 19th century, may well dominate the 20th." The first printing appeared in 1909. TALVART & PLACE (APOLLINAIRE) 28. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76300)
Atlases & Maps, Americana of all periods and areas, English,American & Continental literature, Natural History, Travel, Voyages
