Momas used numerous pseudonyms, including, amongst others, Tap-Tap, Pan-Pan, Trix, and Le Nismois. Miss Gregor is part of Momas series, Par le fouet et par la verge - By whip and by rod. It is also the second book in a three volume series set in an elite girls school in London governed by a harsh disciplinarian, Miss Sticker. The other books in this series are Miss Mary (1907) and Le Secret de Miss Sticker (1907). This Birchgrove Press edition of Miss Gregor is based on an English translation first published in 1907 (Miss Gregor, London-Paris: Privately printed for the French and English Bibliophiles Society). It was most probably published and printed in France and, given the idiosyncratic nature of the translation, was almost certainly translated by someone whose first language was not English. Chapter headpiece decorations in this Birchgrove Press edition of Miss Gregor are from another flagellant novel written by Momas, Fouetteuse, par Trix (Paris-Bruxelles, 1901). Chapter tail-piece decorations are based on designs in Fouetteuse. The English translation of Miss Mary (London-Paris, Privately printed for the French and English Bibliophiles Society, 1906 [c. 1907]) is also available from Birchgrove Press.
