        15 Erotic Stories from Esoterica Press

      [1956]. A group of fifteen erotic stories from the 1950s produced by the clandestine publisher Esoterica Press. Each is composed of mimeographed or photomechanically reproduced sheets stapled with a colored front wrap, a few illustrated. Many of the stories have punch holes along the right margin (as issued?) and are stamped with a date and red serial number; one is prong-bound. Overall very good with minor creases and bumping at the corners.Information about Esoterica Press is virtually nonexistent unlike some of the better known back room erotic publishers, such as 7 Zephyrs Press. The individual stories shed little light on their origin with little or no publishing information outside of the press's name, nor indexes or advertisements for other titles, and with but two authors identified by name: Phoebe Smith and Gavin Moore. The time period of the publications suggest they may be copies of stories commissioned by the Oklahoma oil man and smut connoisseur, Roy Melisander Johnson, which wereduplicated by book agents and sold privately for extra cash unbeknownst to Johnson. No matter the source, little is know outside the stories themselves which usually follow the popular theme of an innocent man or woman exposed to the siren calls of wanton sex through seduction or by force and discipline.A fascinating collection of erotic stories exposing the hidden sexual mores of the 1950s America and the clandestine method of distribution and consumption.

      Hong Kong: (Frederic Prokosch). 1956. First. First edition. Decorate and correugated paper self-wrappers with printed gold foil label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 44 copies, this is copy in unnumbered and designated by Prokosch as the "Author's Copy". Inscribed by the author. Extra label tipped-in. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. OCLC locates five copies in institutions. .
