Cloth and Boards. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 229 pp. Nearly new, no markings, very clean. A man no longer in love with his wife travels to Paris, has a brief encounter with another woman and then begins a correspondence with her. The letters take on a life of their own. The book was the basis for an experimental film in Australia. In an interview, Australian author Scott rejected the label "experimental writer" and said this about this writing style: "Perhaps. certain books require different densities of language. In the novella Violet (from Before I Wake) this meant using a language which partook of Violet's own addled perspective; the density of Christopher Houghton's novella (in What I Have Written) is the combined effect of his gutless romanticism and Jeremy Fayrfax's obsession. In both, the words come directly as a consequence of the characterisation, not from any desire to experiment per se. The older I get, the more I seek to use a plain prose style, concentrating more on story. The true experimenters are there but no-one hears about them the critical/review system tends to concentrate on the handful of 'major' writers and their promising successors; bookshops tend not to sell them; publishers don't promote them." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Cloth. Condition: Very Good +. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Lal, Darshan, Photographer (illustrator). First Edition Stated. 84 pp. essay, 19 pp. of notes on plates, 126 b&w glossy plates of sculptures. Red khadi-type cloth shows very little age. Dust jacket has some crinkling and soil on edges. Text is clean, very faint foxing on edges of endpapers. No markings. Scarce first edition. An Indian art specialist provides a general introduction to India's erotic temple sculptures, found mainly in middle and southern India. (Khajuraho, Konarek, Bhubaneshwar) Excellent photos give close-up details that an on-site visitor might miss because of poor lighting, weather erosion and elevated locations within temples. Excellent notes on the individual plates give the Hindu and Buddhist folklore and philosophy that inspired the graphic images, including fellatio, cunnilingus, bestiality and group sex. The essay is written in typical stilted British English found in Indian academia, but it is readable and not overly arcane. Understandable for westerners who may know little or nothing about eastern religions. Lal takes the view that the sculptures essentially convey a spiritual rather than an aphrodisiac message. He states: ".All these poses represent the various stages of sadhana -- of striving toward the spiiritual goal of release and of mergilng into the infinite." Size: 8vo -- 9.5 In Tall.
