Book 1



Book 1

 I adore the  headline on the very first Swedish book cover !

ROMANEN SOM EN HEL VARLD TALAR OM
The Novel the whole World is talking about !

 That was written in 1964!
 

Interesting detail: That is how Catherine sounds in Swedish:

I del 5 i serien om Catherine, beger hon sig till Spanien för att söka efter sin älskade make som hon tror lider av spetälska. Vägen kantas av våldsamt spännande äventyr och erotiska eskapader. Efter en tids haremsliv hos kalifen i Granada återfinner hon sin man i armarna på kalifens sado-masochistiska syster som försöker mörda Catherine med hjälp av en dresserad giftorm. Tiden är 1400-talet



...and as we can read in my translated article above from 1963, Sweden belonged also to those countries who stood in line to buy the rights to translate the Catherine book, even they had not even yet appeared in the French bookstores...

I quote from the above translated article:
« She carried the story to Editions de Trévise, who accepted it straightaway and communicated it immediately to nine foreign Publishers. (Holland, England, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Spain and Turkey). The latter, enthusiastic, cabled their agreement at once. »
