Very well preserved, fresh copy of this first complete and correct translation of the original text by D.A.F. de Sade. One of the most controversial books ever written. Rare. The 120 Days of Sodom is Sade's masterpiece. A still unsurpassed catalogue of sexual abberrations and the first systematic exploration of the psychopathology of sex, it was written during Sade's imprisonment and then lost after the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Later rediscovered , the manuscript remained unpublished till an incomplete and not correct version was published in 1904 by the German psychiatrist Iwan Bloch under the pseudonym of Eugene Dühren. In 1929 Maurice Heine went to Germany to buy the text fot Viscount Charles de Nouilles. From 1931 till 1935 he published this text as the first real edition in a masterful and autorative way. Near Fine/Near Fine.
