(1743-1810)

Best known as Fanny Hill or Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, this work has been reprinted numerious times since the first volume was published in c. 1748, partially based on the earliest found advertisement in the General Advertiser, Nov. 21, 1748. The second volume appears to have been first published in c. 1749, again partially based on the earliest found advertisement in the General Advertiser, Feb. 14-16, 1749. The two volumes were published as Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, London: Printed for G. Fenton.
William Dugdale published an edition in 1832, two volumes, with an engraved title-page plus 12 colored engravings in-text and 13 large engravings; and again c.1850, two volumes in one, with 20 colored lithographs.
