Venus in Furs

~ First published in 1870

Venus in Furs (German: Venus im Pelz) is a novella by the Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, and the best known of his works. The novel was to be part of an epic series that Sacher-Masoch envisioned called Legacy of Cain (Das Vermächtniß Kains) which was never published.
Venus in Furs was part of Love (Die Liebe), the first volume of the series. It was published in 1870.

I thought it would be easy to find different publications with art, this was not the case at all. I had a few stored on my site already and managed to find a few more.

  • Album 3 by Bruno Schulz, published in 1920 (it's mentioned Xiega Balwochwalcza was Schulz's interpretation for Venus in Furs)
