In the third volume of his bibliographic trilogy on erotic books, Catena Librorum Tacendorum, after giving a one-page summary of the novel, Henry Spencer Ashbee concludes that "The book is very obscene, and possesses no literary merit whatever."

Gordon Grimley, in Wicked Victorians: an anthology of clandestine literature of the nineteenth century, called Dugdale "the most notorious of publisher/booksellers of pornography of his time."

According to Alfred Rose's Register of erotic books, the book is 135 pages long, illustrated, with coloured engravings.

It was republished by Brandon House in the mid-twentieth century.
