LadyMoreStays and Gloves is an intriguing early twentieth-century novel focusing on petticoat discipline and flagellation.

Following the death of his father and his mother’s imminent remarriage, a boy is sent to an elite English boarding school. Lady Flayskin, the head-mistress, compels both boys and girls to dress as girls. As the subtitle suggests, figure training and deportment are cultivated through tight corsets, high-heeled boots, and kid gloves.

Discipline is enforced through the vigorous application of birch and whip. Whilst cross-dressing is a feature of this curious text, the story focuses on the subjection of a haughty young aristocrat, Miss Virginia Malville.Stays and Gloves was first published in 1909 by Roberts et Dardaillon in Paris. It was printed on hand-made paper in a limited edition of 330 copies with ten copperplate engravings by Del Giglio.

Smit. This Birchgrove Press edition is based on the c. 1926 reprint.
