Read full description of the books:
The Scarlet Library has now published Part II of the much-loved British erotic classic. Erich von Gotha's exquisite grisaille drawings illustrate this fast-paced second half of the bawdy, rollicking tale of a pretty young prostitute's wild adventures in 18th century London. Fanny has lost none of her allure over the last 250 years: Cleland follows her closely through the brothels of Hogarth's London to the climactic, orgiastic finale.

Read information about the authorJohn Cleland (1709 – 1789) was an English novelist, most famous - and infamous - as the author of the erotic novel Fanny Hill: or, the Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure.
He was born in Kingston upon Thames in Surrey but grew up in London, where his father was first an officer in the British Army and then a civil servant; he was also a friend to Alexander Pope, and Lucy Cleland was a friend or acquaintance of both Pope, Viscount Bolingbroke, Chesterfield, and Horace Walpole. The family possessed good finances and moved among the finest literary and artistic circles of London.
Cleland entered Westminster School in 1721, but he left or was expelled in 1723. His departure was not for financial reasons, but whatever misbehavior or allegation had led to his departure is unknown. Historian J. H. Plumb speculates that Cleland's puckish and quarrelsome nature was to blame, but, whatever caused Cleland to leave, he entered the British East India Company after leaving school. He began as a soldier and worked his way up into the civil service of the company and lived in Bombay from 1728 to 1740. He returned to London when recalled by his dying father. Upon William's death, the estate went to Lucy for administration. She, in turn, did not choose to support John.
