Author, printer, and libertine Rétif de la Bretonne ("the French pornographer") was among the most eccentric public figures of eighteenth-century France. Gérard de Nerval, drawn to such eccentrics, examines the life of the extraordinary man whose work the 1911 Britannica deems "unfit for general perusal."
