Lives of Twelve Bad Women: Illustrations and Reviews of Feminine Turpitude Set Forth by Impartial Hands (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
Special Order - Arrival Times Vary
Excerpt from Lives of Twelve Bad Women: Illustrations and Reviews of Feminine Turpitude Set Forth by Impartial Hands One class only of Bad Women has been designedly ex cluded, and that is the class to which the name is not uncommonly applied in a special and limited sense. NO woman has been admitted simply because she exhibited the infirmity which takes the form of multitudinous and indis criminate lasciviousness. That such weakness not seldom accompanies vices, which in themselves betoken bluntness of the finer feelings, is for the present purpose an accident. It may be that the line which has to be drawn is a narrow one, and that such characters as Con Phillips and Mary Anne Clarke are very near the border, but there is yet a clear dis tinction between these two women and a Messalina or Cora Pearl.
