Apple-pye Bed (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Apple-pye Bed

A bed made apple-pye fashion, like what is called a turnover apple-pye, where the sheets are so doubled as to prevent any one from getting at his length between them: a common trick played by frolicsome country lasses on their sweethearts, male relations, or visitors.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
