(Occasional minor wear or light spotting to deckle edges.) Original burgundy paper wrappers, price printed on the spine (spine and top edges faded, spine with small losses and creased, light wear to edges). Dutel 673; Perceau 265. FIRST EDITIONS OF TWO RARE HOMOEROTIC WORKS. Pédérastie passive was prosecuted in Cologne in 1895, which suggests a publication date of 1894 or 1895. This group has the copy of A la campagne with the passages of sodomy very carefully marked, suggesting a keen amateur or, perhaps, a legal eye. WorldCat records only two copies each of Passive and Active.
