Although published by Duggale in 1866-1868, this may have been a reprint (or expansion) of an earlier erotic work titled "Nunnery Tales", written by a young nobleman and translated from his French manuscript into English. Printed and sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1727. Priced 2/- (two shillings)
This may be taken from a work like Sebastien Brémond's "Le Cercle"(1673) which had been translated as "The Amorous Abbess", or "Love in a Nunnery" (1684).
• Second edition, listed in LM, October 1736, as "Printed for M. Lovemore."
• Published serially by T. Davis as "The Nunnery Tales; or the Amours of the Priests and Nuns." The author is said to be Mrs. Slade, "late a Nun" (Wiles, Serial Publication).
Nunneries have long been regarded as bastions of goodness and selfless service - with a dark underbelly of unbridled passion and sexual deviance. In "The Nunnery Tales", a lusty young man enters into a convent disguised as a pious young woman - and all hell breaks loose.
