Originally published as: Tales of Villa Brigitte. Translated from the French by M. A. Oxon, London & Melbourne [Paris], H.-J. Vicar, Sons and Co [ Charles Carrington ], 1910. About the translator, the catalog of the Kinsey Institute indicates: "Identification of translator with Moses William Stainton, who used the same pseudonym is uncertain.".

Published in French as: Anonyme, Récits de la Villa Brigitte. Fessées Gaillardes et Authentiques racontées par les membres du club sainte Brigitte, Bibliothèque des Deux Hémisphères [ Jean Fort ], collection Cressida, s.d. [1911].

It is sometimes speculated that the date of the original publication (1910) could be false since the first publication in French was made in 1911, but, in our opinion, it could be the mention of "translated from the French" that is false. Even if the stories are located in Paris, the themes are directly inspired by English spanking novels, like the speeches at the Club of Ste. Brigitte and the women caught shoplifting who are spanked rather than sent to the police station.
