1 Drs. Willy, Vander, and Fisher The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Sex
A similar volume first appeared some years ago. It represented a summary of sexual knowledge as it stood then. However, during the intervening period the science of sex has made such rapid and brilliant progress that the authors considered it opportune to place before the public this volume, in order to make the results of newer scientific research available to the general reader in popular form. The most important new discovery relates to natural birth control, which offers great hope in the solution to an age-old problem. There is a no less important aspect of this subject: During recent years the failure of the intrinsically great works of several investigators of methods of rejuvenation has been definitely established. The scientists approached the problem of rejuvenation from the sexual angle, and practical experience has placed it beyond doubt that the biological process of gradual decay and death could not be delayed for any considerable length of time. Includes a dictionary of medical terms; over 150 illustrations, and 23 color plates. Navy blue cloth with wear at corners, spine ends, edges, and board edges. Shaken, but all pages firmly intact.
