It’s Pride Week on the Cart! A few non-fiction books, a handful of literature, a first edition (paperback) of Marie-Claire Blais’ The Fugitive and a first Canadian edition of E.M. Forster’s Maurice.

Before you read this post, remember that it’s cold outside and it gets dark early at this time of year.
Okay. Are you in the right mind-set now?
Cosmopolitan published The Cosmo Kama Sutra. This lurid pink book comes in an equally-vibrant red box. The contents are nothing out of the ordinary for a kama sutra, but this one is laid out specifically for women (it addresses the instructions to “your body”). It has illustrations rather than photographs, but everything is perfectly clear. It even has little flame ratings for each position: two flames is presumably better than thinking of England, and five flames looks like you’d best be in good shape.
We considered selling this as a package with Maurice (Victorian sex and Lurid Pink sex to get to through January and February), but no matter how you buy this, we’ll provide brown wrapping for those who want it. 🙂
Is this a first Canadian printing of Maurice that I see before me?
I believe it is.
We have in our possession a 1971 edition published by McMillan Canada. The dust jacket is missing and there’s a small white stain on the front cover, but the book is in otherwise good condition. Asking $30.00.
E.M. Forster wrote the book just before WWI but, other than showing it to a few close friends, squirreled it away until after his death. The book was first published in 1971, posthumously. Current readers will think nothing of the content, but Forster was sure it would be too much for the Edwardian and Georgian minds.
