Harris's List of the Covent Garden Ladies

By the bestselling author of THE FIVE: THE WOMEN KILLED BY JACK THE RIPPER



A sexy digest of the bestselling 18th-century Gentleman's directory of Covent Garden ladies of the night, introduced by social historian, Hallie Rubenhold

If you ever wondered what Jane Austen's Mr Darcy and his 'fellows' got up to on their numerous trips to London, here is the book they would certainly have carried around ...

HARRIS'S LIST OF COVENT GARDEN LADIES was a bestseller of the Eighteenth Century, shifting 250,000 copoies in an age before mass consumerism. An annual 'guide book', and published at Christmas time, it detailed the names, attributes and 'specialities' of the capital's prostitutes. During its heyday (1759 -95) HARRIS'S LIST was the essential accessory for any serious gentleman of pleasure.

Hallie Rubenhold has collected the funniest, rudest and most bizarre entries penned by Jack Harris, Pimp-General-of-all-England' into this mischievous little book.
