Séduction: jeunes amours (Seduction: Young Lovers) is in many ways a sequel to Collot’s Jeunesse of two years earlier; it again shows young people engaging in a variety of sexual activities and more or less enjoying themselves. This time the artist is not named on the title page, though he has by now become ‘un artiste celébre’.

The illustrations appear a little pedestrian; it may be that Collot was attracted as much by the funds provided by the ‘amateur’ who sponsored the project as by the subject matter. The same sponsor probably provided the  accompanying rather nondescript text.


Séduction was produced ‘Aux dépends d’un amateur pour le profit de quelques autres’ (at the expense of an amateur for the benefit of several others', in a limited numbered edition of 350 copies.
