M.C.P.M. Maison de correction "Princesse Melanie" (First Edition, annotated)
Switzerland: Comix Trading / Creation Art Presse, 1990s. First Edition, oblong octavo in original printed boards, 66pp, b/w throughout, no date (presumably late 1980s-90s), French language. From the estate of Andrew J. Offutt, with his brief editorial "corrections" on several of Pichard's illustrations, and a square slip noting television shows, in holograph ink and whiteout.
Pichard was a French comics artist noted for his work in the 1960s and 1970s, illustrating women in various stages of bondage, flagellation, intricate apparatuses, role-playing. Here, his trademark gothic look decorates a tale of royal infidelity, capture and torment of Melanie, set in early 1900s unnamed town in central Europe, prefaced by a Jean Giono quote.
Offutt was an avid science fiction author noted for "Conan"-themed fantasies, and wrote 100s of erotic novels under pseudonyms John Cleve, Turk Winter, John Denis, Opal Andrews, etc.; Winter was a name attached to his more violent novels, including the "Blunder Broad" comics series he produced with Eric Stanton, akin to the bondage themes of Pichard. For the consenting, discriminating collector, recalling the erotic underground of Bishop, Eugene Bilbrew, Eric Stanton, and John Willie.
Very Good Plus, light rubbing, and spine nearly detached from signatures at the rear. [Book ID 126735]
