Pathologieën. De ondergangen van Johan van Vere de With. (Met Een woord vooraf van de auteur). (Met eene voorrede van Georges Eekhoud).
Rotterdam, Meindert Boogaerdt jr., 1908. Original illustrated wrappers. XVI, 320 p. Portrait. First edition. Some tiny professional repairs. Purple and cream cover a bit yellowed.l De Haan's second, decadentistic novel, even more openly homo-erotic than his first one, Pijpelijntjes, describes a sometimes sadomasochistic relation between an artist and a student. With a preface by Georges Eekhoud, translated by De Haan. The first part bears a motto by Catullus dedicated to Eekhoud, the second a motto by Olindo Guerrini to Herman Bang, and the third one by Catullus dedicated to Oscar Wilde. A legendary and delicate book with a 'satanic' portrait of the author as a frontispice and an Art Nouveau purple cover decoration of a mournful young man wounding his fingers on a rose.
