KIRKUS REVIEW

By now we know that the Victorians had an almost obsessive love of pornography, written and visual. Ovenden and Mendes provide a fascinating collection of the latter with this assortment of billowy nudes in various enticing poses. The charms of girl-children, many under the age of puberty, are especially well presented. Many were circulated furtively -- others in the form of postcards that went through the regular mails. Fascinating period erotica.
