The original and best biography of the Marquis de Sade Iwan Bloch, a pioneer of psycho-sexual studies alongside Krafft-Ebing, was the first biographer of the Marquis de Sade and also the discoverer in 1904 of de Sade's manuscript 120 Days Of Sodom, previously thought to be lost forever. Bloch's Life And Works Of De Sade, first published in 1899, remains one of the best accounts of the life of the Divine Marquis and is a fascinating biographical, historical and psychoanalytical work. Bloch first provides a shocking account of France in the time of de Sade, detailing its debaucheries, prostitution, perversions and crime before examining the Marquis' own life both in and out of prison. He also examines in depth all of de Sade's major works, including Justine, Juliette, and Philosphy In The Boudoir. The closing part of Bloch's analysis is devoted to an examination of de Sade's psychosexual proclivities, establishing the term sadism one year after it was coined by Krafft-Ebing and presenting the first major psychopathology of this perversion and its leading purveyor. Prefaced by a reprint of the ultra-rare essay 'De Sade: A Study In Algolagnia by the occult scholar Montage Summers, and illustrated with rare drawings and plates, this new edition of Life And Works is also augmented by Bloch's ground-breaking 1904 study of 120 Days of Sodom, plus a complete chronology of de Sade's life and a complete bibliography of his writings.; First edition of this seminal biography in 50 years; Augmented by Bloch's 1904 study of 120 Days of Sodom, plus complete chronology and complete bibliography; Prefaced by a reprint of the ultra-rare essay 'De Sade: A Study In Algolagnia by the occultist Montage Summers.; Illustrated with many rare drawings and plates.; Part of Creation's Autumn 2005 Marquis de Sade promotion; National press coverage, full online promotion.
