First edition in facsimile form of the autograph manuscript.

"In this book, completely closed to humble mortals, there is a person of a different sex who is at the same time the mother, the mistress, the holy Virgin, the wife of the notary and the sister of the hero, and the hero is called Monsieur Dieu by the person in question. This book holds, as in a showcase of phallic jewels, things of exquisite precision: "The woman's sex is the eye-patch of a mask." Monsieur Dieu there cynically mishandles the ladies with a luxury of violence which proves to what point of human insanity he is capable of loving them." (Rachilde, Mercure de France, February 1901).
