ff 32 Bizarre typescript of 250 aphorisms such as 'What women get by weeps men get by whips' (228). Stylishly bound in brown and green morocco, scuffing to edges; large linocut bookplate of Josephina Quinta on the first pastedown and another on the final pastedown. Fernão de Castel-Branco has written a long authorship/ ownership inscription opposite the first typed leaf of 'Preambule' dated to November 1931 and giving his location as 'Franser House'. The text is laid out over 250 aphorisms which are written in a mixture of French, Portugeese (written at Hotel Atlantic, Funchal Madeira) and then English, so '71. There are but three types of women:- Hell-cat Janes, Piccadilly Lizzies, and Frumps.' Aphorism 153 is a paragraph-long consideration of homosexuality, 'Such a solution of the Urning problem as marriage between people of the same sex, is no doubt, perfect from the purely worldly, medical and scientific points of view...' Apparently unpublished - perhaps unpublishable? Certainly arresting.
