About this book:

The four volumes of The Romance of Lust were issued between 1873 and 1876, and they comprise one of the longest and best erotic novels in existence.  It is a witty first-person account of the sexual education of Charles Roberts, perhaps the most famous hero of the Victorian underground.

The narrative is the product of several members of a circle of amateurs d'erotisme, collated by one of its leading lights, William Simpson Potter.  This volume includes letters that were produced in the famous divorce trial of George Henry Cavendish and his wife of 1866 and which had a major influence on the authors of this classic work.
