Subject:        Aretino and Romano

Gabriel Egan mentions the sixteen pleasures.  There is a very funny and
charming novel by that title by Robert Hellenga in which the pictures in
question are seen from the p.v. of a female library conservator from
Chicago who goes to Florence to rescue books from the Arno flood.  Here
pornography is the subject and most of the plot of the book, but a
charming novel comes of it and in the end the pornography produces
good.  I recommend the book.
