Item #66482

Unpaged. Illustrated with b/w artwork (16 plates). Erotic spanking / flagellation fiction. Story begins: "I will begin by telling my readers that my name is Dolly Morton, I was born on a little farm in Massachusetts where I lived until I was 18 years old. At that time I met, and was woed, by a wealthy Southern planter, David Hunter, by name, who had a large plantation in North Carolina. We were married in 1860, just one short year before the tragic Civil War. This story concerns, to be frank, how human beings are ruled and subjected by the simple process of flogging their naked bottoms for every disobedience. In this fashion it is not difficult to bring a woman to the utmost slavish subjection and I had plenty of chances to see the methods they used in operation." Despite the name of the protagonist and the setting, this bears little relation to novel, "The Memoirs of Dolly Morton." Illustrations seem to date from c. 1930s, and include women spanked with brushes, flogged with belts, whips, and birches, both by men and women. Illustrations are not entirely regular in style or dimensions; may come from 2-3 sources. "Printed for Members of the Whip & Rod Club | London in the Reign of Her Majesty Year Two." Spelling and usage tends to follow American English; illustrations resemble some seen in American readers of the 1930s. A curious and attractive item.e item.
