One of the 50 copies of the numbered luxury edition which contains a set of engravings on Chinese paper, the illustrations of the ordinary edition in two colours and the black watercolour illustrations, hand painted by the Art Nouveau painter and poster artist Lucien Métivet (1863-1932), from another edition.

Métivet magnificently illustrated the novel by Lucien Louis, known under the pen name of Pierre Valdagne (1854-1937), which is the sultry diary of a 22-year-old woman caught up in the effervescent, worldly and unrestrained Parisian lifestyle.

In good overall condition, some spots of foxing, other minor imperfections.

Here's what the press had to say when the book came out: "The most deliciously cynical, utterly immoral book ever written - and that's quite an understatement. The extreme limit of impropriety has been reached: the last boundaries of rigidity have been pushed back. And with all this talent, a lot of talent, a lot of wit, a lot of spirit and with very amusing illustrations. But true, it is not a book to be left lying around in a nursery, maybe not even in the smoking rooms where men over sixty go!".
