Dir Lesbierinnen. Ein Dialog Erste und vollstandige ubertragung nach der franzosichen originalausgabe von Paul Marein. Mit neun Radierungen von Felicien Rops (The Lesbians. A Dialogue. First and complete translation after the original French edition of Paul Marein. With nine etchings by Felicien Rops)

No Place: No Publisher, 1970. Facsimile Edition. Facsimile of the original edition from 1909. Folio. (10.75 x 13.75 inches). Hardcover. Patterned blue boards with black and gilt title label to front. Vellum spine with gilt decorative tooling. Black endpapers. Printed on Hollen Van Gelden paper. Title page (and text) printed in gold and black ink. Wide margins. Fore-edge and bottom edges untrimmed. 64 pages. With nine erotic etchings by Felicien Rops. Originally issued in a slipcase but no slipcase present. Slightest spine lean, else a gorgeous, near fine copy.

An unusual work in the form of a stage play consisting of a dialogue between two lesbians. Joseph Prudhomme (listed as the author) and his wife, were evidently French caricature characters created by Henry Monnier. The character of Prudhomme has been described as plump, foolish, conformist and sententious, and was called the classic example of the Paris middle-classes by Honore de Balzac. The erotic etchings by Rops are quite delightful.
