Floethe, Richard, illus.  Cupid's horn-book: Songs and ballads of marriage and of cuckoldry. Mt. Vernon, NY: Airmont Publishing, 1936. 8vo (25.8 cm, 10.125"). 150, [2] pp.; illus.
$50.00

"Written by various hands and embellished with cuts by Richard Floethe": Merrily bawdy verses, progressing from the sensual aspects of wedded bliss to the riskier pleasures of extramarital affairs. Only 390 copies were printed — by Peter and Edna Beilenson of the Peter Pauper Press, in modest disguise — of this celebration of lawful and lawless carnality.

Publisher's quarter floral-patterned paper with woodgrain-patterned paper–covered sides, spine with black leather title-label stamped in silver, in original matching slipcase; one corner bumped and spine extremities with small chips, slipcase showing moderate shelfwear and with one upper edge split and repaired with archival tissue. Pages clean. Internally very appealing despite minor external wear.  (39805)   Please RESHELVE This.
