Raped on the Railway a True Story of a Lady Who Was First Ravished and Then Chastised on the Scotch Express Book Description :

Raped on the Railway is a late-Victorian tale of sex and flagellation. Brandon, a married painter, takes advantage of a young lady on the Scotch Express. Her brother-in-law, who is also on the train, suspects her of consenting to her ravisher's advances and punishes her severely for the perceived slight to his family's honour. First published c. 1899 with the false imprint date 1894, Raped on the Railway was issued, most probably by Charles Carrington in Paris, on hand made paper in a limited edition of 300 copies with wrappers depicting a rape scene. The illustration is signed A. Lambrecht. Adolphe Lambrecht illustrated Carrington's translation of The Mysteries of Verbena House (1882): Les Mysteres de la Maison de la Verveine (1901).

Obscene Modernism Book Description :

During the period 1900-1940 novels and poems in the UK and US were subject to strict forms of censorship and control because of their representation of sex and sexuality. At the same time, however, writers were more interested than ever before in writing about sex and excrement, incorporating obscene slang words into literary texts, and exploring previously uncharted elements of the modern psyche. This book explores the far-reaching literary, legal and philosophical consequences of this historical conflict between law and literature. Alongside the famous prosecutions of D. H. Lawrence's The Rainbow and James Joyce's Ulysses huge numbers of novels and poems were altered by publishers and printers because of concerns about prosecution. Far from curtail...

Freedom s Frontier Book Description :

How does censorship affect our basic right to freedom? Donald Thomas gives a disturbing insight into what those in power consider too dangerous to be seen, or said, by ordinary people. Both timely and thought-provoking, Freedom's Frontier reveals how censorship has restricted freedom of expression in the past, including obscenity prosecutions of writers in the twentieth century, and continues to silence us in the present with the more insidious tool of political correctness. From the use of seditious libel proceedings to stop rumours of George V's bigamy, to the Mutiny Act used to silence Communist publications in the 1920s; from the use of the Official Secrets Act to ban the publication of Spycatcher, to the Salman Rushdie controversy in 1989, Thoma...

Clandestine Erotic Fiction in English 1800 1930 Book Description :

This work offers bibliographical descriptions of all printings of erotic fiction in English issued clandestinely during the period 1800-1930. By 'clandestine' is meant books whose publishers and printers attempt to hide their identities, usually by offering title pages whose misleading places and dates of publication may shock and amuse, but which always aim to mystify. Using internal and external evidence, an attempt is made to establish who were the printers, booksellers and publishers, English and Continental, involved in this trade. The printing families or 'groups' into which a large percentage of the material falls are classified, accompanied by illustrations which identify the main printing characteristics ('house styles') of the groups.
