Item #50630

208 pp. An erotic novel and a novella. Translated by L.E. La Ban; introduction by Rudolph Conway, PhD. English versions of two erotic French novels, the first originally called "Dany et le Plaisir" (Marselles: Andre Danvers, 1960) by ‘Ginette Lambert,’ and the second called "Clayton’s College."
"Clayton’s College" was first published c. 1950 at Paris by Editions de l’Alma. The novel appeared under the name ‘Connie O’Hara’, the pseudonym of José-André Lacour. Together with several other novels published around the same time, including "Ne sont pas morts tous les sadiques" (1949) by ‘Ernst Ratno’ [Ernest Lévy] and "J’irai cracher sur vos tombes"(1946) by ‘Vernon Sullivan’ [Boris Vian]. "Clayton’s College" was suppressed and enjoyed an underground existence for a number of years.
Concerning "Clayton’s College", a correspondent in Holland, Jan Moret, writes: “I have got a French edition: Editions de l’Alma. Cover illustration (a drawing in black & white with the title in red) of a man with eyes his bulging out of his head and a dead girl. No year of printing. According to [Pascal] Pia this is the first edition, published about 1950. I have got two English translations, one by Brandon House (1968) and the other by The Erotic Print Society in London in 1996. But neither book is complete. Both translations end with chapter 17 of the Alma edition, which has 22 chapters. Neither English editions have chapter divisions. In the last [5] chapters of the Alma edition there is a lot of murder and rape." From the library of Patrick J. Kearney, with his small name sticker at the bottom of the verso of the front cover. 3018.
