100 Actual Titles of Real Eighteenth-Century Novels

There are a lot of gems here, so many this list positively sparkles. A few I especially enjoyed:

 

Cuckoldom Triumphant Or, Matrimonial Incontinence Vindicated.

The Egg, Or The Memoirs Of Gregory Giddy, Esq: With The Lucubrations Of Messrs. Francis Flimsy, Frederick Florid, And Ben Bombast. To Which Are Added, The Private Opinions Of Patty Pout, Lucy Luscious, And Priscilla Positive. Also The Memoirs Of A Right Honourable Puppy. Conceived By A Celebrated Hen, And Laid Before The Public By A Famous Cock-Feeder.

Prodigious!!!
