De Kock (1793-1871) was a "prolific French author whose discreetly pornographic novels about Parisian life were, in his day, popular reading throughout Europe. Combination of vigour, coarseness, sense of plot, keen observation, sentimentality, brisk narrative, and descriptive power made his books widely appealing."
