|About the Book|
Published by “Anonymous” in the legendary Victorian magazine The Pearl, and charts the progression of punishments that quickly turn into pleasures for their victims.The leading erotic publication of the Victorian Age, The Pearl first appeared in London in July, 1897. It lasted for a short, but glorious eighteen months, and then vanished: a victim of its own underground status, for income could never catch up with costs. During its year and a half of publication, The Pearl, serialized six novels that have earned the status of classics in the field of erotic literature. The magazine also featured short stories and verse celebrating the sensual pleasures and the pursuit of lovemaking in all its myriad forms.Oddly enough, “Miss Coote” later appeared as a character in the comic book, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, made into a feature Hollywood film.
