    1. "Curious Pleasures" had me in stitches! It's a long-overlooked collection of Victorian humor that has to be as funny today as it was yesteryear. The book is well-written and there is much easier to access these days rather than in the days when it was first published. It sort of reminds me of "The Art of War", a delicious book that survived all sorts of atrocities simply because of its greatness. This book is for people who are not easily offended, and instead appreciate a solid dose of crude hu [...]

    2. With well over a hundred separate monographs and over fifty pen-and-ink illustrations this book tells you tells you all (or possibly more) than you want to know about katoptronolagnia, nipiomimetophilia and many other beastly practises you never knew existed.Obviously well researched (by the indefatigable and self-sacrificing Rev. E. St J. Croom), and containing illustrative anecdotes along with scientific explanation, one can use this volume as a textbook, an instruction manual, or a kind of hi [...]

    3. I loved this book for a couple different reasons. One- Since becoming a steampunk geek I can no longer see the world of Dickens and Austin the same way, driving me closer to the grasps of Verne, Wells, and Burroughs!

Reading this was a none-stop laughfest! It is so irreverent and pokes so much fun at itself and th [...]

    4. Written in the style of an old Victorian facsimile, not unlike the Pimp General Jack Harris' List of Covent Garden Ladies. This list, encyclopaedia if you will, of all manner of deviances. Written in that light, literary and often humorous style of the Victorians, it's presented in a gloriously bound, retro way, complete with curious illustrations of ridiculously curved, supple felines (and other chaps, of course) in all manner of states. It's a lot of fun and very well written. Where else can y [...]
