The Memoirs of Dolly Morton


The Memoirs of Dolly Morton is a Victorian spanking novel that was published by Charles Carrington in London in 1899, with illustrations by Louis Malteste.

The work was published under the collective pseudonym Jean de Villiot, but is generally attributed to Hugues Rebell (George Grassal). The full title is The Memoirs of Dolly Morton: The Story of A Woman’s Part in the Struggle to Free the Slaves, An Account of the Whippings, Rapes, and Violences that Preceded the Civil War in America, with Curious Anthropological Observations on the Radical Diversities in the Conformation of the Female Bottom and the Way Different Women Endure Chastisement.


The book relates the misadventures of Quakers Dolly Morton and her companion Miss Dove, who venture into the American South to help with an Underground Railroad. They are captured, flagellated and raped, and Dolly Morton is forced to be the mistress of a plantation owner. The book is written as the memoirs of Dolly Morton after she has become a madam.

The illustrations by Louis Malteste, of which two examples are given below, are among the oldest we know of the prolific spanking artist.
