~ Pêcheur d’Islande. Roman. Paris: Calmann Lévy, 1886.

8vo (180 × 110 mm), pp. [8], 319, [1]. Some foxing. Original yellow wrappers, preserved (without spine) in slightly later calf, gilt, by Gruel. A very good copy.

First edition of Loti’s novel on the lonely lives of Britanny’s Iceland fishermen. While not a ‘gay novel’ its homoerotic atmosphere has encouraged a gay reading, and later editions often included illustrations steering it in that direction.
