    1. When I was reading Michael Faber’s novel 'The Crimson Petal and the White' recently, I was struck by the frequent references to the infamous 'More Sprees in London', a little book detailing the different prostitutes available around the town, where to find them, what they charged and to which particular specialties each one would cater. The chief reason that I was so intrigued by the mention of this book is that, although Faber’s creation is fictional, such books did indeed exist. Perhaps th [...]


    2. Vaguely acquainted with Harris’s List from another of Rubenhold’s publications - The Harlot's Handbook: Harris's List – this slim volume found its way into my library as one of those spur-of-the-moment bargains. It’s been sat for about a month on the dresser between the works of Patrick O'Brian and Georgette Heyer , the main culprits for rekindling my interests in Georgian/Regency Britain… Since today was too cold to venture far beyond the duvet, this was conveniently close to hand. It [...]


    3. It's a curio. I would like to be able to read the original, but apparently very few exist. This short pamphlet style novel details the sanctum sanctorum of many a Convent-Garden Lady. Sex Workers who frequented the Soho area et cetera. What is interesting abou this book, is that websites have picked up where it has left off. I found the writing of Sam Derrick, who was the apparent literary stylist behind Harris's List to be intriguing in the sense that on the most part it described the services [...]


    4. Like Hallie's other book, 'Lady Worsley's Whim', this is an excellent study of a period of time quite fascinating and in many ways contradictory to that of modern times, in all aspects of accepted social form, etiquette and moral outrage. In fact, it constantly makes you wonder if we have the right to be so forthright in our views sometimes when it comes to things like chastity and monogamy and what Hallie brilliantly does, and specifically in this book, is really open up an intense and fascinat [...]


    5. This is why I love books. I'm talking actual real, dead-tree books. I picked this up purely for the fact it exists, a wonderfully compact and nicely designed hardback, reprinting an edited version of Harris's List, the prostitute guidebook to London, from 1793 (with a selection of other noteworthy entries from other years).The brief history is entertaining but the majority comprises the often floridly poetic depictions of the ladies, their appearance and their preferences, both monetary and sexu [...]


    6. What an odd little book. This is excerpted from several editions of a guide to London prostitutes in the late 18th century. What makes it so much more than that is that the author, who apparently stumbled onto this gig in a moment of financial desperation, has genuine talent. More than just a catalogue of whores, it's also a series of little vignettes describing, in a few deft strokes, each "priestess of Venus'" appearance and attributes, sexual habits and qualifications, and price. I found it f [...]
