About this Item

Octavo. xxiii, 470 [2]. Second edition. Over sixty illustrations including the old couple stooped over from the effects of onanism (or masturbation) The author warns of those who focus on "amatory" thoughts and then began a friction on their organs leading to self-pollution resulting among other evils in idiocy, insanity, consumption and death. He notes that out of 816 cases of insanity in the New York State Lunatic Asylum at Utica, 107 were known masturbators. Early marriage will assuage these lustful desires. He also recommends the "French male safe" (early condom) particularly if the female has a discharge. Although written well over 150 years ago, there is much here which might well be appropriate for evangelicals today. Bound in publisher's brown embossed cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, some edge wear with chipping to spine ends. Bookseller Inventory # 016619
