Pearl: A Journal of Facetive and Voluptuous Reading (1879) - James Jennings [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]


The Pearl was a collection of erotic tales that were published in London between 1879 to 1880, when they were forced to shut down by the authorities for publishing rude and obscene literature.

Rosa Coote is a character from the magazine. She is a boarder at a school where most of the mistresses and girls spend their off-duty hours beating and whipping each other. When she leaves school, she sets up house in a suburb of London and continues beating and whipping her friends and servants. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pearl_(erotica) [Jul 2006]

Among the first "Journals of Voluptuous Reading" to be spawned by the Victorians, this novel shows them as vastly different from their public image--beneath the facade of respectability and sexual repression there existed the strongest urge for sexual experimentation and enjoyment. First published in London in July 1879, it provided unrestrained erotica for every taste. --Ingram

Lewd, bawdy, and sensual, this cult classic is a collection of Victorian erotica that circulated in an underground magazine known as The Pearl from July 1879 to December 1880. Now dusted off and totally uncensored, the journal of voluptuous reading that titillated the eminent Victorians is reprinted in its entirety. The 18 issues of The Pearl are packed with short stories, naughty poems, ballads of sexual adventure, letters, limericks, jokes, gossip, and six serialized novels including "La Rose d'Amour," filled with inventive and exotic lovemaking scenes; "Miss Coote's Confession," with graphic descriptions of initiations into pleasure; and "Young Beginners," a collection of exuberant sexual adventures. Scatological and scandalous, The Pearl is definitely not for the straitlaced or pure of mind. --Product Description
