~ First published in 1914

Les Malheurs de Colette is a spanking novel by Aimé Van Rod. It was first published in 1914 by Librairie Artistique et Édition Parisienne Réunies.

There is also a 1928 edition by Édition Parisienne which was illustrated by Georges Topfer and has a cover illustration by Martin van Maële.

The novel was translated to English under the title The Misfortunes of Colette or The Ironical Fruits of Discipline, which features 8 illustrations by Eric Galton. It was issued privately for subscribers only by Gargoyle Press in circa 1930. One can see how Galton based three of his illustrations on Topfer's. Re-edited and translated also under title Colette's shame or Strange Passions: the unusual story of a woman flagellant by The Lashe Press in 1936. There has also been a partial translation for collectors and students of psychology, published in 1940 with a re-edit in 1960: Maiden spankings: fruits of discipline.
