Summary
"Contemporary commentators have generally ignored women's participation in the rise of modern pornography, as well the importance of pornography to the cultural identity of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain. In this book, Bradford Mudge examines the origins of pornography in Britain and presents a comprehensive overview of the significant role of women in the evolution of erotic fiction."--BOOK JACKET
