Jean de Villiot was a pseudonym used by several authors and compilers working for the publisher Charles Carrington writing novels and “studies” concerning flagellation, including Hugues Rebell (Georges Grassal), Hector France, Stéphane Arnoulin and Charles Carrington, himself. This novel is attributed to George Grassal (Hugues Rebell) originally written in French, in 1902, as “La Femme et son maître” (The Woman and her Master). In 1904 “Woman and her Master” was published in English by Charles Carrington. Panurge Press published this work as “Black Lust” in 1931. This book is a numbered limited edition copy of the Panurge Press edition.
