This von Bayros portfolio appears to be something of a potboiler, bringing together minor erotic texts from two French authors in a German translation by Max Hecker. Claude Prosper Jolyot de Crébillon’s 1745 Tableaux des moeurs du temps dans les différents âges de la vie (Pictures of Morals at Different Stages of Life, or Sittenbilder unserer Zeit in German) gives von Bayros an excuse to illustrate lesbian revelries, while Alexandre Jean Joseph Le Riche de La Popelinière’s 1867 Histoire de Zaïrette (Die Geschichte der Zairette in German) is a pastiche oriental fantasy to which von Bayros adds optional free-roaming phalluses.

Die Geschichte der Zairette was published privately in Leipzig in a numbered edition of 500 copies.
