In November 1749, a year after the first installment was published, both Cleland and his publisher Fenton and Ralph Griffiths were arrested and charged with "corrupting the King's subjects." While Cleland disowned the novel in court, the book was popular enough that pirated editions began to appear. Griffiths published an expurgated version of the book in March of 1750, but was prosecuted once again for it, although the charges were subsequently dropped. It is considered "the first original English prose pornography, and the first pornography to use the form of the novel".
