4.0 out of 5 stars Guided tour of the grande horizontales, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Madams: Bawds & Brothel-Keepers of London (Paperback)
A depiction through the ages of the oldest profession in society - from the Elizabethan era to the XX century, focusing mainly on the Georgian period. Well written and in depth analysis with a good bibliography to choose from for further information on the subject. There is also a collection of prints and paintings (some by the most important artists of the times) showing both some of the characters and the interiors of brothels. The author manages to give a light heartfelt and elegant image of the lives of the great bawds and their girls without a scent of seediness. Linnane's study clearly shows how society has changed persepctive regarding prostitution, from allure to a psychologically respressive approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, 2 Oct. 2014

Very interesting to read of the history of the Madams and brothelkeepers. It was also quite eye opening in some respects by the amount of "well to do Gentleman" were running around with these ladies.
