Paris. Chez Michel de l'Oremeraie, 1977. In-4. Non paginé. Comprising illustrated title page, 16 decorated chapter-head numbers and 37 superb full-page erotic engravings and accompanying text all printed in black and/or brown. The illustrations are the work of the accomplished contemporary French artist and painter of Polish origin, Agata Preyzner. Published in a limited edition of 1500 copies, the first 177 are bound in a sumptuous soft sheepskin with relief designs in black and gold to covers and spine. This copy, one of the leather-bound issue, is EXCEPTIONAL in bearing the number 0 and a handwritten presentation note to M. Giscard d'Estaing, President de la République Française (from 1974-1981). FINE condition in original moire slipcase ( a few marks, and scrapes to edges ) ** Ouvrage orné de 37 magnifiques gravures érotiques hors-texte de Agata PREYZNER ainsi que 16 têtes de chapitre et une page de titre illustré. Tirage à 1500 exemplaires dont 177 en tirage de tête présentés dans une superbe reliure plein mouton lisse mosaïqué. Cet exemplaire UNIQUE et hors-série porte le numéro 0 et l'inscription à la main 'réservé à M. GISCARD D'ESTAING, PRESIDENT DE LA REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE'. On ne sait pas si le président l'a eu dans son bibliothèque. Reliure très légèrement frottée aux bords, l'étui également. Très bel exemplaire.
