Victorian erotica from the late 1800's. The Pearl, A Magazine of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading was an monthly magazine issued for 18 months in London by William Lazenby from July 1879 to December 1880, with two Christmas supplements; it was closed down by the authorities for publishing obscene literature. Lazenby followed it with The Oyster (1883) and The Boudoir.
The general format of the magazine was to publish three serial erotic tales simultaneously, devoted to sex in high society, incest and flagellation, respectively, interspersed with obscene parodies, poems and limericks. The publisher William Lazenby also wrote some of the contents. Some of the poems are thought to have been written by Algernon Charles Swinburne.
The Pearl contains "My Grandmother's Tale", the first pornographic story based on slavery in the American South. This volume contains every issue except the Christmas special from 1879.
