Étude sur La Flagellation

~ First published in 1899

The book Flagellation in France from a Medical and Historical Standpoint (1898) was translated into French and published by Charles Carrington under the title Étude sur La Flagellation a travers le monde aux points de vue Historique, Medical, Religieux, Domestique et Conjugal, avec un exposé documentaire de la flagellation dans Les écoles anglaises et les prisons militaires, in 1899. The greatly expanded second edition of Flagellation in France was published under the title Curious Cases of Flagellation in France, by Charles Carrington in 1901. This was an English translation  (with litte art) privately printed for the subscribers to Dr. Cabanes' "Bypaths of History".

The first publication (English title) was without artworks, the French translation was without art as well. In 1901 there was a publication which seems to be a compilation and expansion of a few other books previously published by Charles Carrington including the original Étude sur La Flagellation a travers le monde, this edition has artworks from René Lelonge (second album). Then I found a book for which I am not sure if it is connected (my research skills in these fields are limited): Tcherikof, Episodes des Geurres de Pologne (1830) et d'Autriche-Hongrie, published in 1904 with art from Martin van Maele.
