Livre d'Heures Satyrique et Libertin du XIXme Siècle

Livre d'Heures Satyrique et Libertin du XIXme Siècle


[ed. Kistemaeckers, Henry] Printed by Vanbuggenhoudt in Brussels. Black crushed morocco with tooled "hinges." Blue silk moiré endpapers. Inner gilt dentelles. Gilt edges. Gorgeous. Slight rubbing to head and tail of spine. Gorgeous anyway.

A libertine's book of hours, "conceived without sin by the Brussels publisher Henry Kistemaeckers." Includes text by Alfred de Musset, Théo Hannon, Henri Nizet and others. Chapters include morning prayers, evening prayers, meditations, oblations, and voluptuous lamentations - and others. And they're all filthy.

The real MVP here is the illuminated borders though. What smut!

Includes several blank pages at the beginning for "Souvenirs d'amour" if you're into that sort of thing. Overall, this is a beautiful piece of fin-de-siècle porn.
