Research Documents

Below are just a few of the documents I used in my Carrington research. Additional sources include information that came from many verbal and email communications with Peter Mendes, Patrick Kearney, J.B. Rund, Steve Gertz and Gilbert Rigot (Carrington's great-great nephew); numerous auction, library and bookseller catalogues; and actual examination of many of the books during my visit to the Kinsey Institute Library. General background and historical information came from a multitude of sources such as those publications written by Jay Gerzman "Bookleggers and Smuthounds", Gerson Legman "The Horn Book", Patrick Kearney "A History of Erotic Literature, Peter Mendes "Clandestine Erotic Fiction in English 1800-1930", etc.
