[Salten, Felix?]. Josefine Mutzenbacher oder Die Geschichte einer Wienerischen Dirne. Von ihr selbst erzählt. Privatdruck.

[Vienna, Fritz Freund], 1906.

8vo. (2), VI, 383, (1) pp. Contemp. half calf with giltstamped red spine label.

 2,500.00

One of 1,000 copies, not numbered. A variant imprint of the first German edition, showing the correct page count "383" (rather than "332", as misprinted in the previous impression). "Gesuchtes Sotadicum!" (Hayn/G.); the work's authorship remains unresolved: the publisher Fritz Freund and Willi Handl probably were involved.

Binding insignificantly rubbed; foredge and several pages show brownstaining. The half-title boasts a full-page erotic illustration by the Expressionist artist Johannes Maximilian Avenarius (1887-1954), signed and dated "J. M. G. [19]25".

Cf. Hayn/Gotendorf VIII, 477, Bilder-Lexikon IV, 692. Stern-Szana 233 (all "332 pp.").
