The Wordsworth Erotica Collection includes some of
the finest Victorian and Edwardian examples of the genre.
About this book:
The Pearl was an extraordinary subterranean magazine that had a brief life of eighteen months in the years 1879 and 1880. It was devoted to unrestrained erotica, comprising astonishing sexual escapades, jokes and bawdy rhymes.
This volume contains three of the novellas which were serialised in The Pearl. Lady Pokingham; or They All Do It, Sub-Umbra; or Sport Among the She-Noodles and La Rose d’Amour; or The Adventures of a Gentleman in Search of Pleasure are all classics of the genre, and throw a gaudy light on the clandestine concerns of one section of Victorian society.
