L'ENFANT DU BORDEL. London, 1800 [ca 1830]. 2 volumes in-18, green paste paper boards, cold fillet on boards, spines decorated with gilt fillets, gilt tomaison, untrimmed. 150 pp; [2 ff.], 132 pp, 8 lithographed figures. The original edition of this novel attributed to Pigault-Lebrun dates from 1800. This one was published around 1830, probably by the Garnier brothers. Chérubin is raised in a brothel by the mistress of the premises, who provides him with a sexual education, but he prefers one of the boarders to her, and the two lovers are driven away. "There then begins a series of adventures, each more incredible than the last, [which] are told in a pleasant tone, entertaining at the same time as precious." (Dict. des Œuvres érotiques). Covers and corners rubbed, marginal tear to one leaf of the first volume, not missing. Dutel A-323.
