VARLET, Theo. Aux Paradis du Hachich: a suite Bauldelaire.
(Paris): Societe Francaise d’Editions Litteraries et Techniques, 1930. First edition. Paperback original. 184 pages plus 4 pages of adverts. An important and yet little known work on hashish. Divided into three parts, the volume first deals with prohibition and the authorrs analysis is still relevant today arguing against abuse and for the proper use of hashish. The second section is a critique of Baudelaire’s Artifical Paradise. The third and longest section is an absolutely fascinating account of the author’s 127 experiments with hashish. This is a very good copy in original printed wrappers. Inscribed by the author on the half-title.
