The best libraries in Victorian Britain kept this tome under lock and key, permitting access only to doctors and professors. Scotland Yard had a copy in their reference library, and even Sherlock Holmes may have had recourse to a copy in certain investigations. In private collections across the English speaking world, it was kept on top shelves, or safely stowed in locked cabinets, beyond the reach of minors, domestics and spouses. Any woman who gazed upon its pages was said to have fainted away. The church campaigned to have it banned and the German translation was burned at Nuremberg. Many antiquarian book sellers believe the book to have been a myth, others claimed it changed hands at enormous cost, and some are certain all original copies are now lost. But Curious Pleasures does exist and is back in print - nearly a century since it's last apocryphal edition. This encyclopaedic treasure of adult pleasures, dysfunctions and unacceptable female behaviour has been fully restored with the original illustrations intact. In modern hands, this forbidden work of scholarly madness will prove hilarious.

First Digital Edition; Grier Rating: A* Sloane works as a secretary to a New York television producer. She lives in the Village and enjoys cruising the bars at night for one-night stands with women she doesn’t know. She has a few part-time lovers she sees on a semi-regular basis, but hasn’t found the woman who would steal her heart… until she meets Allison, a young actress. Sloane’s boss has hired the young woman to star in the pilot for a new television series. Sparks fly immediately between Sloane and Allison, the young actress having had experiences with women as well. Their relationship builds slowly, as Allison doesn’t want to become too involved until after the pilot is shot. She is convinced the intensity of the relationship will distract her from her work. Sloane, who realizes she is close to falling head over heels, becomes extremely frustrated and vents that frustration by spending the night with one of her part-time lovers. At the end of filming, Sloane’s boss throws a huge party at his mansion in the country to celebrate. They were celebrating the completion of the pilot... and Allison’s debut as a star. The party was wild and drunken... and then it got out of hand, pushing both Sloane and Allison to the very edge of darkness. Would their fragile new-found love be torn apart? Or would they fight for that love, and overcome inner demons and the harsh glare of the television industry’s lights for the chance at a life together?

It is impossible to take a walk in the country oneself without being amazed at the vast continent of one's own ignorance. Thousands of men and women live and die without knowing the difference between a beech and an elm, between the song of a thrush and the song of a blackbird. Probably in a modern city the man who can distinguish between a thrush's and a blackbird's song is the exception. It is not that we have not seen the birds. It is simply that we have not noticed them. We have been surrounded by birds all our lives, yet so feeble is our observation that many of us could not tell whether or not the chaffinch sings, or the colour of the cuckoo. We argue like small boys as to whether the cuckoo always sings as he flies or sometimes in the branches of a tree - whether Chapman drew on his fancy or his knowledge of nature in the lines:
