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 freuented 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 of each worker to the benefit of the worker and thus culled perhaps unnecessarily clientele from knocking on their doors Each Sex Worker is described as to her service and then her price is named The freuent mention of birch wood for spanking is amusing and on particular description of a Sex Workers services towards the end is well worth the potter through the earlier pages If the oldest business in the world tickles your curiosity I would say it is a fine petite edition to perhaps extensive descriptions of working in the Sex Industry As I said before I sometimes am somewhat uestionable about the validity of such edited curios simply because I fancy having a bit premise behind what I am about to read especially if penned by numerous or dubious authors I like a bit of foreword to lead me into the merit of the text rather then descriptive tattle before I nurture the neatly bound eccentric artefact but this can only encourage one to dig a bit deeper into the history of our sexual anthropological selves

This is a great little book I d heard of Harris s List from my studies of the period at university and had read some extracts from it This book traces the interweaving stories of three of the people involved in its production and in doing so introduces a lot of other personalities and explores a lot of the issues There are a lot of the usual problems in writing social history of the poor the relative lack of documentary evidence and the propensity of people to change their names does make it hard to piece together people s lives and sometimes the author is forced to rely on conjecture None of her conjectures are unreasonable but some are longer reaches than others especially when it comes to what one or other of the people must have feltBut these are uibbles It s an engaging accessible account which is sensitively written It is compassionate to the women and men who found themselves drawn or forced into prostitution It acknowledges that for some it was a good career choice while recognising that for many it was exploitative and horrid It explores the prevailing gender stereotypes that drove the trade and the attitudes towards prostitutes and their clients and in a move that made my feminist heart glad it includes an appendix listing four pages of names of men who regularly used prostitutes the men who as the author points out have been able evade the scrutiny and judgement heaped on the women who serviced themIt did strike me how much our sexual morality has changed We regard the 18th century especially in terms of high society as a time of rigid sexual morality compared to our own Certainly any breath of impropriety could ruin a woman s reputation and chance of a decent life forever Same sex relationships were illegal and harshly punished But by modern standards many of the men on that list who no doubt felt themselves blameless and were pillars of society would be regarded as criminals Many of these girls were children Many seductions were in fact rapes Many of these filles de joie were no than indentured slaves People who condemn modern morality and long for a return to old fashioned values would do well to remember that This book is a welcome antidote to the over romanticisation of the Regency period I like a Regency romance as much as anyone but this provides a good companion piece
