The Romance of Violette (Paperback)
All sales of this book are final--it is print on demand and may take up to 3 weeks to arrive.
In the same wonderfully graphic tradition as Flossie, The Romance of Violette tells the sexual coming of age of a very naive but incredibly inquisitive young woman at the loving tutelage of our thirty year old narrator, Christian.
When a young seamstress assistant takes refuge in the rooms of Christian, he is immediately enamoured with her beauty and innocence. Heart all a flutter, the feeling is more than mutual as Violette is soon left swooning from her first kiss.
What follows is great many firsts told in true unrestrained Victorian erotic prose as the young woman succumbs to being one led by her more naturally carnal instincts.
This little seen work, anonymously written in 1891 and published in the same year by the infamous The Erotica Biblion society of London and New York in 1897, The Romance of Violette represents the passions of lust and love combined, which is often lacking in cruder pretenders to the genre.
A must have for any erotic collection.
