London : Camden
Publishing Co., [ca.1920]. First edition in English. First published in Paris in 1864 as “Les

LAROCQUE, Jean (Jean-Baptiste) 1836-1891 : A LIFE OF PLEASURE : A VIVID AND GRAPHIC PICTURE OF BOHEMIAN LIFE IN PARIS.
London : Camden Publishing Co., [ca.1950]. One of Camden’s series of translations of dubious nineteenth-century French literature – the present title may be an amalgam of more than one of Larocque’s works, which included “Les Voluptueuses : Odile” (1888), “Les Voluptueuses : Isey” (1887), “Niobé : Étude Moderne” (1863), etc.
“NARRAN, Bree” – translator : CRISP STORIES (VOLUME 3).
London : Camden Publishing Co., [ca.1950]. A fresh edition of a Camden Publishing favourite first published at least twenty-five years earlier. Twenty-two “of the most entertaining and amusing short stories, from the work of famous French authors, translated into excellent English”. Includes “A Domestic Episode”, “A Lady’s Trick”, “Yellow Stockings”, “Innocence”, etc. It is not clear whether in this instance the translator “Bree Narran” was the Australian author-publisher William Nicholas Willis (1858-1922), or his son and successor of the same name (1898-1960).
