The full text of all issues of THE PEARL, the underground magazine of Victorian England. The Pearl made its debut in London in July, 1879, the self-proclaimed journal of unblushing erotica for every taste. It flourished on the subterranean market until December, 1880, when it vanished as mysteriously as it had appeared. Included in the eighteen issues were six serialized novels that are standards of the black literature of the time ("Lady Pokingham, or They All Do It," "Miss Coote's Confession," etc.), as well as the meatiest limericks then current, parodies of Robert Burns' Merry Muses, ballads of epic sexual adventures, countless ditties, witti-cisms, jokes, letters from "readers," and a potpourri of the scatological and scandalous gossip of the day.
