Illustrations for Gamiani by Achille Devéria
Gamiani was first published in 1833. Its authorship is anonymous, but it is believed to have been written by Alfred de Musset. The lesbian eponymous heroine is assumed to be a portrait of his lover, George Sand. It became a bestseller among nineteenth century erotic literature.
This portfolio of twelve colored plates by Achille Devéria (1800-1857) were included in the first edition of Gamiani, ou une nuit d’excès (Gamiani, or A Night of Excess) in 1833. The second part of Gamiani was written the next year.
The full novel, with both parts of Gamiani, can be found here.
