Notes:
"Notorious strumpets was first published in book format by Angus & Robertson in 1990. It has long since been out of print. Republishing it in electronic format offers many advantages. First of course, it can be more widely available and affordable. Equally important, the biographies are now fully searchable, a terrific advantage for researchers. I have also added a gallery of maps, pictures and documents from that period" -- Introduction. Title from disc.
