Girodias founded the Olympia Press in Paris in the Spring of 1953, a shoestring operation par excellence. The first manuscript he acquired was Henry Miller's Plexus together with de Sade's Bedroom Philosophers and Memoirs of a Young Rakehell. His DB's, short for "dirty books", deal with sex in an explicit and unabashed manner and can be defended on the grounds of "literary merit". This huge compendium includes The World of Sex by Henry Anthology from the Paris Years. Miller, The Ginger Man by J.P. Donleavy, The Black Book by Lawrence Durrell, Fanny Hill, The Story of O, Frank Harris's My Life and Loves, Naked Lunch, Lolita, The Soft Machine by Burroughs, Sexus and Our Lady of the Flowers by Genet to name but some of the 42 very full extracts, together with details of the authors and plots.
