* Anonymous novel about lesbian love, written with a fine and sensitive pen, apparently written by prolific novelist Sophie Hoechstetter (1873-1943). At the end she put the classical plea for acceptance of homosexuality, invoking Shakespeare, Michelangelo, Winckelmann and Platen, but also 'Wilhelm der Oranier' (= King William III of Britain), Louis XVIII, Molière and Newton, before coming to Verlaine, Wilde, Plato and Sappho. A fascinating novel with a pro-homosexual tendenz. First edition in excellent condition.
