Fanny Hill, or, Memoirs of a woman of pleasure by John Cleland ( Book )
113 editions published between 1749 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tale of a naive young prostitute in bawdy eighteenth-century London who slowy rises to respectability, the novel-and its poularity-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
Memoirs of a woman of pleasure by John Cleland ( Book )
73 editions published between 1749 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fanny Hill, one of the most popular novels of the 18th century, traces the rise of its heroine from prostitution to middle-class respectability. Condemned in its own time on grounds of indecency, the book was the subject of several law suits until as recently as the 1960s. For today's reader, the work holds as much fascination as when it was first published not only as the foremost example of English erotic fiction, but as a literary classic in its own right
