Limited edition, this being number 284 of 1,375 copies printed. Publisher's original red cloth with paper title label to the spine, in dustwrapper. Page edges untrimmed. Original silk ribbon bookmark. Illustrated with 12 black and white plates. A lovely fine copy, the binding square, firm and bright. The contents with a few dots of foxing to the text-block edge are otherwise clean throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. Complete in the near fine dustwrapper which has just a little rubbing to the extremities. An excellent example.
A wide-ranging exploration of Aphrodisiacs with a particular emphasis on food and diet, including a section detailing recipes designed to revive a flagging libido. Ostensibly a work "restricted to members of the Medical and Legal Professions, Scientists, Psychologists, Sociologists, Ethnologists and Anthropologists".
