Séduction: jeunes amours (Seduction: Young Lovers) was first published in Paris in 1902 under the pseudonym Pierrot, with later editions in 1908 and 1910. In fact several of the dozen or so narratives are by known authors, including Alexis Piron (L’ode à Priape) and Henri Monnier (Les deux gougnottes), though Jeremy Leah’s translation for the Erotic Print Society’s Scarlet Library suggests that all the texts are anonymous.

In the Sex Diaries Sylvie Jones describes the commission for twelve illustrations for Séduction as one of her most enjoyable, though it has to be said that they are not her most original, and seem rather hurried.
