Bookride has found a treasure trove of inadvertently obscene passages from 19th century classics, like this double entendre from Charles Dickens:
'She touched his organ; and from that bright epoch, even it, the old companion of his happiest hours, incapable, as he had thought, of elevation, began a new and deified existence.'
The source is a pamplet by Edward Gathorne called Inadvertencies collected from the works of several eminent authors.
