Recommendation : 'City of Laughter'

'City of Laughter : Sex and Satire in the Eighteenth Century'by Vic Gatrell. I heard a review of this book on the radio yesterday and it struck me that American lovers of British classics would like this scholarly history of sex and satire in 18C London. It sounded a bit bawdy but is an unusual take on these times because it is based not on literature but on cartoons and prints of the time. It is quite expensive but would make a a good pressie to put on your Xmas/Birthday list:smileyhappy::-

(I hope you can pick the Guardian link up - I often find it doesn't work. If so, just Google for the title and the link will come up.)
