FANNY HILL by John Cleland

Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, by John Cleland (1709-89), published in 1748, is a classic of English erotica. This edition contains the whole of Cleland’s infamous book, which has been banned and prosecuted a number of times (including in the U.S.A. and Britain). It was finally published fully in the 1960s. It has been adapted in cinema and television many times. Fanny Hill is a beautifully written work, lyrical and down-to-earth as well as undoubtedly erotic. It still retains its controversial power. Above all, it is a pleasure to read.

Illustrated by Paul Avril (1843-1928), one of the great modern erotic artists, with the illustrations Avril produced for the 1908 edition of Fanny Hill.

Illustrations & bibliography. 200pp.

From the Inside Flap:

Fanny Hill, shrouded in controversy for most of its more than 250-year life, and banned from publication in the United States until 1966, was once considered immoral and without literary merit, even earning its author a jail sentence for obscenity.

The tale of a naïve young prostitute in bawdy eighteenth-century London who slowly rises to respectability, the novel–and its popularity–endured many bannings and critics, and today Fanny Hill is considered an important piece of political parody and sexual philosophy on par with French libertine novels.

This uncensored version is set from the 1749 edition and includes commentary by Charles Rembar, the lawyer who defended the novel in the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court case, and newly commissioned notes.

From the Back Cover:

"A rare achievement . . . a ray of sunshine in the gloomy world of lust."
--Erica Jong
