GROVE PRESS, 1968. FIRST EDITION, thus (FIRST EVERGREEN BLACK CAT SOFT COVER EDITION) first year printing. Very good complete condition, cleand and tightly bound, minor edge wear and faint creases. "This legendary Victorian underground magazine of erotica contains six serialized short novels: Sub-Umbra, Miss Coote's Confession, Lady Pokingham, La Rose D'Amour, My Grandmother's Tale, and Flunkeyania. In addition, The Pearl is peppered with short stories, bawdy poetry, and humor both witty and crude. Shamelessly politically incorrect, sophisticated & naive, sacred & profane, it's all here: complete and unabridged". Three volumes in one containing the issues originally published from July 1879-December 1880. 643 pages.
