Edward Sellon is perhaps one of the most fascinating characters in the annuls of Victorian publishing, writing licentious pieces of erotica for the infamous William Dugdale, while debauching himself with maid and mistress when his wife was absent; He wrote exactly as he lived.

The graphic account of his time serving as an army officer in India, presented in his autobiographical work The Ups and Downs of Life combines an Orientalist air of forbidden romanticism with the lurid realities of officer on leave. Amongst the sexually naive and infinitely curious locals to the wealthy and eager debutantes flung to some far away corner and desperate for some familiar affection, Captain Sellon will sate his carnal appetite until he is well and truly spent. No deed or corset is left undone, no willing female left unsatisfied.

Author of The New Epicurian and The New Ladies Tickler, also available from Locus Elm Press, Edward Sellon's personal recollections will shock and delight those a fan of the genre. Very naughty indeed.
