Die Brautnacht

Wien: Verlag für Kulturforschung. 1931.

First edition. pp. 192, 6 mounted photographs from the album of "a defloration fetishist who ended up committing suicide". Illustrated throughout with reproductions of photographs, drawings and engravings on erotic themes by artists including Manassé and Georg Grosz. From the series Die Legitime Erotik. Blue-green cloth decorated and lettered in gilt. Some slight marking to the covers, internally very good. A nice copy of an exhaustively detailed work on the culture of the wedding night, carried out with that characteristically German mixture of earnestness and titillation.
