Scarce erotica. Author unknown and uncredited, though mentioned as having been one of the titles confiscated by authorities in the 1936 obscenity arrest and conviction of noted erotica distributor, Samuel Roth (see Gertzman, BOOTLEGGERS AND SMUTHOUNDS p. 271). Roth was a prolific, New York based importer of erotica and banned literature, arrested for distributing censored materials several times between the 1920s and 1950s. A Supreme Court ruling in his 1957 case, Roth vs. The United States, provided an important ruling on obscenity. This book consisting of six short, erotic Japanophile tales involving American G.I.'s abroad: "Introduction," "The Paradise of Love," "The Juggler and the Nuns," "The Merchant Istoguyo," "A Royal Bridal Night," "The Hour of the Tiger." Rare, undoubtedly due to their seizure. No copies in OCLC as of December 2015.
