The Covent Garden Ladies : Pimp General Jack and the Extraordinary Story of Harris' List Paperback
In 1757, a down-and-out Irish poet and a celebrated London courtesan became bound together by the publication of a little book: Harris's List of Covent Garden Ladies.
Hallie Rubenhold tells the story of this salacious publication which detailed the names and `specialities' of the capital's prostitutes, and became one of the eighteenth century's most successful and scandalous literary works.
