Miss Mary is a translation of a French flagellant vel written by Alphonse Momas (1846-1933), a prolific author of erotica (Miss Mary, London-Paris [Paris]: Societe des Bibliophiles, 1907). Momas used numerous pseudonyms, including, amongst others, Tap-Tap, Pan-Pan, Trix, and Le Nismois. Miss Mary is part of Momas' series, 'Par le fouet et par la verge' - 'By whip and by rod.' It is also the first book in a three volume series set in an elite girls' school in London governed by a harsh disciplinarian, Miss Sticker. The other books in this series are Miss Gregor (1907) and Le Secret de Miss Sticker (1907). The English translation of Miss Gregor is also available from Birchgrove Press.
