An uncommon early Olympia Press publication, published June 1953. Kearney notes, "A translation, reportedly by Richard Seaver, of Les Exploits d'un Jeune Don Juan, an erotic novel that was first published at Paris in 1905 or 1906 by Elias Gaucher. Although generally credited as an original work by Guillaume Apollinaire, it is actually a word-for-word translation by the poet of Kinder-Geilheit, Geständnisse eines Knaben (Berlin: 1891)."
