[CHOISEUL-MEUSE, Félicité de] Julie, ou J'ai sauvé ma rose. Hambourg et Paris chez les marchands de nouveautés 1807 2 vol. in-12 : [4]-240, [4]-272 pp. (qqs rouss., rare stains). Bradel percaline rose mod. with marbled paper boards set with gilt fillet and stippling, gilt flowered spines, green titles (spines faded, small dents to headpieces). Untrimmed. First edition of this Sapphic novel ending in torrid lesbian love scenes, hence the epigraph warning: "La mère en défraindre la lecture à sa fille" ("The mother will forbid her daughter to read it"). A second edition, in modernized French, appeared under the same date and address, but 15 years later according to Pia. The attribution to Mme Guyot has been refuted by Paul Lacroix, who sees in it the work of the Comtesse de Choiseul-Meuse (1767-1838), real or supposed author of some twenty novels of varying licentiousness. Extremely rare: even the Enfer de la BnF only has the 1st volume of our edition. Ref. Perceau 6-1 (mentions 276 pp. for t. II, but our ex., which ends with the word "Fin", seems complete). - Pia 713-714 (t. I only). - Nordmann I:85. - Cp. BGL II:747-748. - Not in Dutel. - Cf. Martin, J.-C. - "L'érotisme au féminin ou la transgression discrète en temps de crise?", in: Genre. Revolution. Transgression. Études offertes à Martine Lapied. Aix-en-Provence, 2015, pp. 95-104 [online]. Prov. Karl Ludwig Leonhardt, Hamburg (ms. note on lower flyleaf of vol. I).
