Also A Supplement, Giving More Particulars Of The Nunnery And Grounds. Illustrated By A Plan Of The Nunnery, Etc. Maria Monk Burst On The Scene In 1836 With Her Scandalous First Edition Of Sexual Abuse And Torture In The Above Mentioned Canadian Nunnery. That First Book Was Also Titled, Awful Disclosures. Her Book Was Soon Widely Condemned By Experts And The Press; And Upon Subsequent Investigation Proven To Be, At At Least Majoritively, Made Up; - The Product Of An Addled Mind, And Scurrilous Life Style. She Immediately Rushed Out This Second "Revised" Edition To Combat The Assaults Against Her Integrity And Add Subsequent, In Her Mind At Least, Proof For The Veracity Of Her Shocking Tales. Wow, What A Tale She Relates. If Only It Were True. Quite The Distinctive Tome Here. A Choice Morsel Of Captured Tyme.
