The Yellow Room
The Yellow Room is a vintage Victorian era flagellation and spanking novel by an anonymous author, dating from 1891. The book, really a novella, is generally attributed to M. Le Comte Du Bouleau, aka Stanislas Matthew de Rhodes. It contains female chastisement, both consensual and non-consensual. The story is about an eighteen-year-old girl educated and disciplined by her stern aunt and uncle. The title refers to the room in the house where she is frequently punished.
This was reprinted along with another Victorian story, Letters to a Lady Friend, in Whipped into Shape: Two Classic Erotic Novellas by Renaissance E Books Inc. (2004).

Under the pen-name "Julian Robinson", the Count du Bouleau also wrote The Confessions of Georgina (1893), the tale of a young girl who is dominated, punished, and forced to write a detailed memoir of her experiences. The book is largely a satire of the hypocrisy of Victorian morality.
Two more books by the same author, also written under the name Julian Robinson, are early classics of femdom literature: Gynecocracy. A narrative of the adventures and psychological experiences of Julian Robinson under petticoat rule (1893), and The Petticoat Dominant, or Woman’s Revenge – The Autobiography of a Young Nobleman (1898).
In Gynecocracy, Robinson is forced to wear female clothing and change his name to Viscount Ladywood. Some editions of the book, such as Blue Moon Books in 1999, list Viscount Ladywood as the author.
