Sin City: London in Pursuit of Pleasure
Andre Deutsch, 2002 - Всего страниц: 288
A fascinating and eye-opening trip through the ages, from Roman orgies to bestiality, from drugs to all-night Victorian raves, Sin City uncovers some very deviant behaviour in London through the ages. Spanning a 1900-year period, from the Roman occupation to the end of the Victorian era, it is a fascinating account of what Londoners have done for pleasure over the years.
