Scouts in Bondage — And Other Curious Works from Bygone Times with Titles that Might Cause Vulgar Minds to Misapprehend Their Content - Compiled by Michael Bell

Aurum Press, 2006, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank otherwise a very well presented copy.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “All the books illustrated in this irresistible little volume were collected by Michael Bell when he owned an antiquarian bookshop. His criterion for inclusion was simple: these were old books that raised a grin if not a guffaw from his customers as soon as they saw them. Some of the titles are simply mystifying or bizarre, others evoke a world which has long since vanished, but most frequent of all are the titles, like Scouts in Bondage itself, that now suggest something quite at odds with the author’s original intentions.”
