Both a personal pleasure and an historical resource, this unusually wide-ranging and highly individual collection traces the teasingly elusive figureof the lesbian down the centuries from the ancient world to today. Lesbians appear both in fact and fiction, in works by both men and women (Sappho and Swinburne, Emma Donoghue and Charles Dickens) ; in letters, diaries, trial transcripts and epitaphs, medical pamphlets and case histories as well as in fables songs, poems and stories. It is laid out in chapters - "In the Beginning. ?"; "Betwixt and Between"; "In Foreign Parts"; "Courts, Courtesans and Whores"; "Just Friends?" and so forth. A wonderful compendium of the beautiful, the subtle and not so subtle, and just about everything in between. 424 pages, including a title index, and author index, and general index. The cover is heavy and has heavy flaps front and back. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
