Dupony, Alexandre
Collection Privee de Monsieur X: L'oeuvre Inedite D'un Photographe Anonyme Des Annees 30

Paris: Editions Astarte, 2000 Fine paperback. Numerous b&w nudes. Text in French and English. As new.

Monsieur X was an amateur Parisian photographer of the 1920s and 30s. He produced an astounding body of erotic and fetishistic imagery for his own pleasure. Luckily, his photographs were not destroyed in one of those family auto-dafés so frequent in other cases. Some twenty years ago this octogenarian, feeling he was not getting any younger, decided to sell the entire body of his photographic work to a Parisian bookshop owner chosen for their discretion and taste for erotica. Monsieur X then threw the original glass negatives into the Seine.
