Despite causing a real sensation in her day Miss Sally Sill is somewhat forgotten in the eyes of history.
The Prudish Victorian moralists did all they could to suppress the frank, uncensored interviews conducted by this pure and noble Christian girl with many of the most notorious Courtesans of her age talking of themselves and their dear departed Sisters.
Ironically it is thanks to the hypocrisy of one: a Lady Cecilia LeMonte that our Directing Editor Mr Warner has uncovered the complete set. It seems Lady LeMonte was all too happy to read these stories however filthy and unholy she proclaimed them to be. To hide the shame of possessing such material she buried them in an undisclosed location that Mr Warner was able to uncover almost 200 years later.
The interviews are in the process of restoration. With sketches by artists Franz VonStuker and Chloe Havelock reimagined by Warners regular artist Raven Morrison illustrating the covers this novella sized series shall be the first priority of the company.
Be sure to collect all of The Scandal Sheets of Miss Sally Sill!
The hypocrisy of Victorian morality; there were more prostitutes during the late Victorian era than at any other time in our history. Nature abhors a vacuum.
Actually I think there were more in the Georgian era. Conservative estimates were 1 in 3 women.
But the Victorian scene was dead kinky!
Errr….I know I am old…but did not this lady feature in The Old Curiosity Shop?
Considering this Miss Sill was born in 1767 she’s probably a relative of that one. Anyway Dickens is out of copyright 🙂
