By John Cleland

DETAILS

A limited edition of this racy novel from the author of Fanny Hill about a male prostitute.

John Cleland (1709 – 1789) was an English novelist most famous and infamous as the author of Fanny Hill: or, the Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, a novel which landed him in prison for its bawdy content.

After his release from prison and the prosecutions over Fanny Hill, Cleland became a hired author. He attempted two more novels, Memoirs of a Coxcomb (1751), which contains a parody of Mary Wortley Montagu as "Lady Bell Travers" that was much discussed, and The Woman of Honour (1768), as well as a collection of romance tales in The Surprises of Love (1764).

Number 278 of 575 copies printed on Verge Montgolfier hand-made paper by Maurice Darantier.

CONDITION

In a half-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally smart, despite some wear to the head and tail of the spine, and light bumping to the corners. Rear joint is cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD.
