1 Hickman, Katie. Courtesans.
HarperCollins, 2003. 0007113919 2003 0007113919 / 9780007113910 1st Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
Hardback in Fine condition, with dustwrapper in Fine condition. First edition, pp xix, 363, with author's note, prologue, introduction, conclusion, notes, select biography and index.The author of the bestselling Daughters of Britannia has produced another fascinating read in this biography of five stars of the demi-monde. Her period is 'the long nineteenth century', the 150 years which lie between her first courtesan, Sophia Baddeley, who died in 1786, and her last, Catherine Walters, who died in 1920. All were Englishwomen, but Cora Pearl, Hickman's fourth subject, also cut a swathe through masculine French society. Hickman gives several definitions of the word 'courtesan', the most interesting of which is that of 'the ultimate luxury good'. S5. 
Price: 8.00 GBP
