Pierre-Jean-Baptiste Nougaret [1742-1823] was a prolific playwright and novelist with a strong interest in the licentious. La Capucinade was first published in 1765. In the mid-1950s, Maurice Girodias' Paris-based Olympia Press was publishing pornographic novels in English to cater to the Anglophone tourist and expatriate communities; this edition of La Capucinade was one of many such novels published at the time in French, catering for the home market.

An unread, unopened copy.
