From Our Editors

Martha F. Bowden puts the spotlight on 18th-century author, Mary Davys, in this collection of her works. The Reform`s Coquette, Familiar Letters Betwixt a Gentleman and a Lady & The Accomplish`d Rake are three stories exploring sexuality and male-female relationships to the extent that the day would allow. The first tale features Amoranda, a woman who succeeds at curbing her appetite for impropriety. The second story is a discourse between a Whig woman and a Tory man who grapple with the idea of being in love without actually falling in love. The third yarn unravels the exuberant, youthful and hot-blooded activities of Sir John Galliard.
