About this title

Synopsis:

From the dust jacket flap:
"Fille de joie, lady of the evening, lady of pleasure -- delightful euphemisms. The fille de joie is seen variously as mysterious, remote, and incredibly sinful; desirable and corrupt, magnetic and repellent. The one undeniable fact about her is that she has plied her trade in all times, wherever there have been men. If ever an institution has shown popularity and universality it has been this one. . . .
The literature of the fille de joie is vast and rich, but no book like Fille de Joie exists. Never has there been a collection of writings on the subject with such variety, range, excitement, and fascinating fact. . . .
Fille de Joie's 371 illustrations comprise the largest and best collection of pictures ever assembled for a book on this subject. Many of them come from sources inaccessible to the public and have never before been reproduced."
