The Dialogues of Luisa Sigea, Literally Translated from the Latin

Paris: Isadore Liseux, 1890.

Title printed in red and black. 3 volumes, slim 8vos, bound in beautiful contemporary 3/4 green morocco, gilt-decorated and lettered spines (spines faded to light brown, a bit darker at ends) with red leather labels; marbled endpapers, t.e.g. Paris: Isadore Liseux, 1890. Fine copy, handsomely bound.

One of the most notorious amatory classic works of the 17th century. The Dialogues are considered the first pornographic work written in Latin. The attribution to Spanish poet Luisa Sigea was in fact a hoax, the real author being Nicolas Chorier.
