* “Dolly Morton. The only authentic memoirs about the whipping of slaves before the Civil War, about discipline in the passionate life of the Southern colonists and the cruelties to the white anti-slavery women of the North. Translated from the English for the first time by Augustin Sarcel.” A salacious flagellationist book, situated in Virginia (1866), with nice black-and-white illustrations by Louis Malteste. There have been various suggestions for the name of the author, however, none of these appear to be sure; there's even some doubt about this being a translation or the original. See Mendes 160-A.
