Orgies. Jules Fontana, Isidore Isou, the Lettristes.


Konakry: Le Mali Pense, nd [1960]. First edition. 8vo, 128 pp, printed wraps. Illustrated with 11 full page pornographic b/w photographs, most printed on coated paper. Text in French.

The first and only edition of this work of erotica, detailing orgies in the Congo - one of a number of works of erotica which were written by Isidore Isou and the Lettristes to raise money for the movement. A sequel was also penned by the group, entitled Vilaine. The book was censored for the first time on January 27, 1962.

This is one of the scarcest of such publications by the movement, with OCLC locating no holdings as of the time of cataloguing.

Dutel calls for 10 photographs, but this copy has 11.
