Les livres de l'Enfer
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Les livres de l'Enfer: bibliographie critique des ouvrages érotiques dans leurs différentes éditions du XVIe siècle à nos jours (Eng: The Books of the "Enfer:" Critical Bibliography of Erotic Works in their Different Editions from the Sixteenth Century to the Present) is a catalog of the secret library of the Parisian Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the so-called Enfer de la BNF. The book was edited by Pascal Pia, Guillaume Apollinaire, Fernand Fleuret and Louis Perceau and first published in 1913 by the Briffauts.
This catalogue and Patrick J. Kearney's Private Case listing of erotica have served as reliable catalogs with a bibliographic function, different from other relevant bibliographies in that these two have been compiled using works in hand.
