L'Enfer de Joseph Prudhomme; Savoir Deux Gougnottes et la Grisette et l'Etudiant

450.00

[Monnier, Henry]. Paris: Sans la Permission du Roy Louis-Phillipe. 116 pp. 8 loose colour plates laid-in. 16mo. 12.75x8.5 cm. Stiff maroon wraps. Light sunning to spine. Overall very good.

The Hell of Monsieur Prudhomme, a caricature created by Monnier and described by Balzac as "indicative of the bourgeois of Paris," is exactly what you'd imagine if you're imagining immoral men in plaid trousers, voyeur birds, and ribless women pleasuring themselves and each other. If that's not what you were imagining then you're welcome.

An unauthorized reprinting c.1940/50. (344)
