    A French translation was puublished in 1911 by Bibliotheque des Deux Hémisphères [Jean Fort] as Recits de la Villa Brigitte.

    Printed by Harry Nichols in London and distributed in Paris by Carrington. Note Carrington using his real name of Paul Ferdinando, a very rare occurrence. The copy at Kinsey could not be found.

    Previously published by Leonard Smithers in 1893. A French translation of that work was published by Carrington in 1902 as La Gynécocratie [retaining the flagellation scenes but expurgating all sexual descriptions]. Gynecocracy is thought to have been written by either Stanislas de Rhodes, a London lawyer or possibly by Havelock Ellis, although there is no hard evidence to support either theory. [See Mendes: 84-A]. The copies held in the British Library and the Kinsey Institute are unifrom with Mendes 84-B.

There were 13 publications in the series, one being The Rakish Rhymer or, Fancy Man's own Songster.
