"Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure' (popularly known as 'Fanny Hill'), is an erotic novel by John Cleland first published in England in 1748. Written while the author was in debtors' prison in London, it is considered 'the first original English prose pornography, and the first pornography to use the form of the novel.' One of the most prosecuted and banned books in history; it has become a synonym 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 & sexual philosophy on par with French libertine novels." [Pub. Info] The publisher's preface contains a brief biography of Cleland and a brief accounting of the dismissal of a NY lawsuit to have the book banned for obscenity in 1963. DELUXE EDITION.
