Description

Published by J. Childs, 12 State Street, Boston. A superb example of Civil War era batchelor pad erotica. Showing a pretty Victorian era ingenue amid a boudoir setting, replete with drinks and coupling manual at her arm, clearly relaxing in post-coital bliss. Extant examples of 19th Century American erotica are uncommon, and this one is exceptional. One, approximately 1” vertical tear at the upper margin edge, overall near-mint and fresh. Framed.
