"All other Neapolitan conditions were actually as bad as represented in Juliette. According to Gorani the Roman Empire had never seen such moral corruption as in the court of Naples, no such Messalina as Queen Caroline." --Marquis de Sade: His Life and Works (1931) by Iwan Bloch

"A fourth secret pornologic society was the Secte Anandryne, the club for tribades, who celebrated their orgies in the Temple of Vesta." --Marquis de Sade: His Life and Works (1931) by Iwan Bloch

Marquis de Sade: His Life and Works (1931) is a work on Marquis de Sade first published by Brittany Press in 1931 and later republished by Castle Books, New York in 1948.

It is a translation of the work of Iwan Bloch by Solomon Malkin as James Bruce. There is an online version, probably based on Malkin's translation.

As of 2019, it was unclear to me whether the book was translated from Der Marquis de Sade und seine Zeit (1900), from Neue Forschungen über den Marquis de Sade und seine Zeit (1904) or from both.


"Next to the Marquis de Sade the most famous erotic writer of the Revolutionary period was the productive Restif (Rétif) de la Bretonne. We shall later evaluate Rétif de la Bretonne as one of the first critics of de Sade. We are at present interested in him only as a contemporary of de Sade and in his influence upon him. It was plainly Rétif, whom de Sade referred to unfavorably in his novels: "R… floods the public and needs a printing press next to his bed. By good fortune they groan alone under his frightful products; a dull decrepit style, nauseous adventures in the worst society; no other merit but a great verbosity for which only the store-keepers will be thankful." May not professional jealousy have played a part in his judgment? We will later see that Rétif did not think much better of de Sade. It may also be that the highborn Marquis thought himself far removed from the lowborn Rétif."
