162pp. "Collector's Book Number Seventeen." A twelve-line poem appears on the title page. This would appear to be a photo-reproduction of a reprint [c.1935] of a pornographic work called Realistic Pleasures Gathered from the Diary of a Sybarite ('Alexandria', 1900-1901), printed around the turn of the century by Renaudie at Paris for Duringe and, possibly, Leonard Smithers. The book contains ten chapters, including "Miss Birchem"; "Mr. Spanker"; and "The House of Flagellation." One detects an obvious theme, with variations.
