I’ve shown examples of this before, back in the previous planetpooks lair.
This time, I bought two books with the same cover art. On Sherwood Smith’s recommendation I ordered Lascivious Bodies: A Sexual History of the Eighteenth Century. When it arrived, I looked at it and thought, “Hmmm…
“This looks familiar.”
At first I thought I’d bought the same book twice, possibly retitled. But no, even though the subject matter is similar, Sex in Georgian England is a different book.
I love the cover art. Is this a famous illustration? Anybody recognize it?
Enquiring pooks wants to know.

Yes! It’s a famous caricature by James Gillray, called, I think, “The Duchess’s Little Shoe”
And I knew, if anybody would know, it would be you! Thanks for the recs and the information!
