WILMOT, John, Earl Of Rochester

Sodom Or The Quintessence Of Debauchery.

Paris: The Olympia Press 1957

12mo, pp.123. Original green stiff paper wrappers, lettered in black. Slight production-fault wrinkling to spine, very slightly cocked, otherwise a fine, unread copy.

First Olympia edition, no. 48 in the Traveller's Companion series.

In 2005 an eighteenth-century edition of this work was discovered; until then, the earliest known publication of the text dated from 1905. Since this spectacularly obscene text dates from the seventeenth century, there is room for more discoveries to be made.

A very nice copy.
