CES DAMES:; PORTRAITS DE MALAKOFF, DE ZOU-ZOU, DE RISETTE. PHOTOGRAPHIÉS PAR PIERRE PETIT
Paris: Chez tous les librairies, 1860. Second edition. 16mo., 216 pp., albumen photographic frontispiece. Occasional light foxing. Contemporary quarter morocco spine titled and decorated in gilt, with rubbed marbled paper over boards. Early owner's ex-libris affixed to the front pastedown. A very good copy. This small book of literary portraits of Parisian dancers, actresses and prostitutes was written by Auguste Vermorel (1841 - 1871), a journalist with socialist leanings who was active in the Paris Commune. The frontispiece photograph by Pierre Petit shows three women in a raucous pose with legs kicked high. Although this title went through as many as 6 printings, WorldCat locates very few copies and only two of this second edition: New York Public Library and University of Newcastle.
