Fanny Hill in Bombay: The Making and Unmaking of John Cleland.
Adults only. Cleland is one of the most scandalous characters in British literary history. He was also a colonial administrator, bookseller's hack, translator, reviewer, and author of many more books than his most famous - the first pornographic novel in English. Gladfelder shows how Cleland engaged with prominent intellectuals of his time while being vilified as pornographer, atheist, and sodomite. Beautiful book like new other than slight flaw to front top of jacket. Johns Hopkins University Press. 2012. Hb, Dj. USED. $20.00
