The woman and the puppet = (La femme et le pantin) by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

166 editions published between 1896 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es considerada uno de los grandes clásicos de la narrativa erótica del siglo xx. Aunque La femme et le pantin ha sido editada varias veces en España, hasta el momento jamás había recogido los maravillosos grabados a color realizados por Paul-Émile Bécat para el volumen que imprimió en París Le Vasseur et Cie., Éditeurs, un 24 de noviembre de 1945, recién terminada la Segunda Guerra Mundial, con las ilustraciones coloreadas a mano por el propio Bécat. El espléndido trabajo a color de este gran ilustrador ofrece al libro esa visión de Andalucía tópica y extravagante que el cine también ha reflejado en las adaptaciones realizadas hasta ahora de La mujer y el pelele, como la de Josef von Sternberg -The Devil is a Woman (1935, con Marlene Dietrich y Lionel Atwill)-, Julien Duvivier
Aphrodite : mœurs antiques by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

180 editions published between 1892 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Ptolemaic Alexandria, at a much later date than Bilitis, Aphrodite is as much a love story as a crime story. Louys' decadent, sensual vision of Egypt in classical times is a jeweled setting for a story of transgressive love. The sculptor Demetrios, the favorite of Queen Berenice, falls for a well-to-do courtesan, Chrysis. Much of the story is set in the world of the courtesans, a realm of beauty, luxury, sapphic indulgence, and some dark shadows as well

The adventures of King Pausole by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

97 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The code of government of the legendary (Anatole France's) mythic King Pausole prescribed but two laws for his subjects: the first being, Hurt no man, and the second, Then do as you please. Pierre Louÿs, pseudonym of Pierre Louis (1870-1925), was a French novelist and poet who expressed pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection. Louÿs frequented Parnassian and Symbolist circles and was a friend of the composer Claude Debussy. He founded various literary reviews, notably La Conque in 1891. His 'Chansons de Bilitis' (1894), prose poems about Sapphic love, purporting to be translations from the Greek, deceived even experts. 'Aphrodite' (1896), a novel depicting courtesan life in ancient Alexandria, made him famous and it became the best-selling work by any living French writer (350,000 copies)
