The Medmenham fraternity has "fueled considerable literature, but is there any factual basis for the Dashwood legend?"
This book seeks to determine to what extent Dashwood was a legendary "lecher and satanist" and to what extent he was "sociable, well-travelled, responsible, and respected." (He was, after all, valued by his contemporaries Ben Franklin and William Pitt.)
Trade paperback, illustrated, 256 pp. Indexed with bibliographic references incorporated into the text and 6 pages of "Chapter Notes" at the end with bibliographic material.
