Note
  • The British Library catalog calls this a false imprint; the book was actually printed in London. See British Library general catalogue of printed books to 1975, volume 80, page 278
  • The second of two issues of this edition. First issue title-page makes reference to a frontispiece drawing: "Six Nouvelles Amoureuses, translated from the French of A. Denervilyani (with a Frontispiece specially designed for this translation.)." Apparently only a limited number of these frontispiece leaves were printed, not enough to be included in all 105 copies of the work. When the frontispieces were exhausted, a cancel title page, lacking any mention of a frontispiece, was substituted. See Nelson
  • The translator is identified in the advertisements as "... 'Neaniskos' (co-translator of the 'Priapeia') ..." (p. 81). Neaniskos was the pseudonym of L.C. Smithers, one of the publishers of the Erotika Biblion Society, whose offices moved to London in the spring of 1891. See James G. Nelson, Publisher to the decadents : Leonard Smithers in the careers of Beardsley, Wilde, Dowson (University Park, PA: Pennsylvania State University Press, 2000), page 30 ff
  • "One hundred and five copies ... have been printed ... None of these copies is for sale"--Verso of series title page (page [4])
