(n.p.): Elite Books, Inc.. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. (c.1961). 1st Edition (unstated). Hardcover. [light wear at spine extremities, spine slightly turned, light browning to page edges; jacket shows some wear along top and bottom edges, minor chipping at top of spine, a couple of small closed tears]. "Beau Tremaine -- a most handsome and cynical, middle-aged Libertine -- when desperate for money for his many diversified pleasures, organizes a bunch of glamorous and exciting females and males into a so-called 'health resort,' but which was nothing else, in reality, but a good excuse for a sex camp in wild and turbulent Reno, Nevada -- the gambling mecca of the entire country." Lest you think this is less than Literature, folks, here's the dedication: "To the memory of EMILE ZOLA -- who was the innovator of the original school of NATURALISM, in general, and the direct and burning inspiration which led to the modern school of JOE WEISS -- of THREE-DIMENSIONAL NATURALISM, in particular!" (What? You say you missed the Modern School of Three-Dimensional Naturalism, as embodied in the oeuvre of Mr. Weiss? Were you just not paying attention?) . (Inventory #: 14352)
