Originally Written in 1870 by Austrian nobleman and writer Leopoldo Von Sacher-Masoch (1836 - 1895).

This particular book is part of his larger series “legacy of the cain”. It tells the tale of a man who dreams to speak with Venus herself and submit to her as a slave, to be subjected to cruel and tormenting acts.

Sacher-masoch is the reason the term “Masochist” exists. The ever famous psychiatrist Richard Von Krafft-Ebing - who completed notable studies surrounding perversions and sexual behaviours, worked with Sacher-Masoch who prominently craved pain, humiliation and submission to women.

This includes nine gorgeous coloured page plates by the talented French illustrator Suzanne Ballivet, born in 1904.
