THE STRIPTEASER later: THE TEASER PURE AND SIMPLE (Olympia Press)
A very rare set of this Olympia Press publication. Erotic glamour magazine of pin-up and (semi)nude photography with important literary contribs, very risky for it's time. Texts from 'completely unexpurgated' books published by the Press by or on de Sade, Henry Miller, Georges Bataille (Pierre Angélique), John Cleland, Robert Desmond. Number 2 is a promotional pamphlet for Rene Roques' Three passionate lovers (containing an excerpt from same and accompanied by numerous B&W semi-nude photographs) "not seen" by Olympia's bibliographer Patrick Kearney, who also notes "[k]nown to exist from ban in 1954."
