Abstract:

The Devil stalks the monastery of Santa Catherina in the form of the mysterious Demon of Sicily, seeking new souls to plunge into everlasting torment. He sets his sights on Father Bernardo, a young priest questioning his vows, and Sister Agatha, a depraved and licentious nun. The Demon, a supernatural being of seemingly unlimited power, promises Bernardo and Agatha fulfillment of their wanton sexual urges in exchange for their souls. This edition includes the unabridged text of the rare 1807 first edition, together with seventeen lurid illustrations from the elusive 1839 edition published by the infamous pornographer William Dugdale. This edition also features a foreword by New York Times and USA Today bestselling novelist Jo Beverley, whose heroine reads the Demon of Sicily in her novel An arranged marriage (1999). -- Back cover.
