Bloomsbury, London, 1991, first edition. 
156 pp, small 4to (10 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 074751030X Colour and b&w illustrations. "....provides a historical context for prostitution in the modern Western world, and explores the sexual politics of the oldest profession. ( Philip) calls on testimony from prostitutes, clients and reformers from the last three centuries, in Britain, America and continental Europe, to build a revealing account of this complex and many-sided phenomenon. The emphasis is on the hu m a n s t o r y behind the bare commercial transaction. The author's non-judgemental stance allows us to see prostitutes as they see themselves: as working girls. The text is amplified and illuminated by over sixty illustrations, many in colour, i nc lu d in g wo rk s by artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Picasso, Grosz and Kitaj, and master photographers such as Brassai and E.J. Bellocq. Anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to be a prostitute, or has pondered the qu est ion s o f pow er , c ont ro l , independence and slavery that prostitution raises, should read this book." Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing. Near Fine/ Very Good+
