Mysteries of Verbena House (Paperback) (Etonensis)
about this item
This classic of Victorian ****** flagellatory fiction recounts the wonderful ways in which Miss Sinclaire, headmistress of one of the most fashionable and expensive ladies schools in England, maintains discipline and order amongst its 50 curious and unruly students. By application of rod, birch, and horsewhip, our protagonist will shame all who commit indiscretion, who cavort and steal away into each-others beds, and who steal!
But will she meet her match with the headstrong young lady called Miss Bellasis or will the thief succumb to her punishment enough to change her ways. And how will Reverend Arthur Calvedon for surely the humiliation would be doubly so?
The Mysteries of Verbana House, a long revered and referenced work and ode to all deed and devices corporal in punishment, brims with the naughtiness one would expect of an era where repression oft gives way to wild abandon. Swish!
