Great Sexual Scandals - Susan Crosland

Robson, 2002, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good DJ. Top edge of DJ slightly ruffled. Text bright and tight.

Each of the 27 chapters is written with the authority and wit for which her books are known, whether non-fiction or fiction. Possibly the most outrageous account here is the opening chapter, 'Queen Pasiphae', set in Crete in 2,000 BC, where King Minos's wife gratifies her monstrous passion for a majestic bull by secretly ordering Daedalus, the most celebrated craftsman of that day, to build a hollow wooden cow in which the Queen arranges herself to receive her bestial lover. Illustrated with B&W photographs.
