The mysterious Montorgeuil illustrated in the style of the 1930s and 1940s, though the exact date remains unknown. It was in 1970 that Bel-Rose published high quality limited editions of his work, packed with illustrations, of which 'Dressur' in German is a fine example with 29 lithographic images. It was published as 'Dressage' in French and the title carries its SM neaning into the Eglish use of the word - as training, instruction etc. All, obviously, in an erotic context. Of the four books in the series, this one carries by far the largest number of illustrations.
The works of Montorgeuil (sometimes spelled Montorgueil) are highly collectable and well known to aficionados of the genre.
