The Songs of Bilitis
By Pierre Louys
The Aldus Society, 1904. Limited edition number 825 of 971 copies.
Antiquarian erotic lesbian poetry, or as history would tell us: women who were very good friends, lived together, took no lovers, had no children, and wrote really ‘friendly’ letters to each other.
Whoever buys this book is tasked with finding out why they chose to make 971 copies. Such a specific number. It is a mystery that needs to be solved. By purchasing this book you are entering a binding written agreement that you will be the Sherlock Holmes, the Hercule Poirot, the Batman that we need. The book is pretty gorgeous too!
Good. Nice gilt top edge and deckled fore edge and bottom edge. Binding is firm and pages are unmarked. Boards are chipping and peeling at corners, boards and spine are discolored, rubbed, and have some stains.
"First edition" also means first printing unless otherwise stated.
