About this Item

softcover, 5¼" x 7¾" SIGNED ON TITLE PAGE BY CYRIL PEARL. In this richly amusing and historically important study, we are introduced to London's glittering nighthouses, where love and liquor were dispensed until dawn; we meet fabulous daughters of the game like Skittles ('the girl with the swansdown seat') the innkeeper's daughter whom Royalty befriended, and the barmaid who became France's unconsecrated Empress - all people robust in their pleasures and jealous of their personal freedoms! Six b&w illustrations. SIGNED book in VERY GOOD condition 278 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 35227
