Goldberg, Isaac, 1887-1938.  
Sexarians.

Publisher: New York, The Panurge Press, Privately Printed, 1931.
Eight stories which involve male and female sexuality. The longest-- The Honeymoon-- traces the thoughts of a couple as they leave their wedding ceremony and travel by train to a resort hotel and the emotions each feels about the future. Goldberg was a prolific and serious author and yet stories dealing frankly with sex, even ones as sensitive as these, had to be presented as privately printed for collectors of erotica (the fifth story may be directed to them). 25805. 299 p. Number 761 of 1500 copies. Vg/no dj.

Appr.: | AUD 36.59 CAD 34.72 EUR 24.39 GBP 19.11 JPY 3,000.00 MXN 375.00 ZAR 333.33

Over the next ten months he sent twelve chess pieces and twelve letters back to Sonja... which told nothing of his experience of the camps, but described an imagined land called the Antipodes, where all the game pieces that cluttered the sets and drawers of the garden collection came to life to guide the doctor through his fateful and wondrous last adventure... a tale of spiritual progress disguised in the most exotic visions of the imagination."
