Fragile Minds and Vulnerable Souls

£24.99

Product description

This volume investigates the creation of 'obscene writings and images' as a category of print in nineteenth-century Germany. Sarah L. Leonard charts the process through which texts of many kinds - from popular medical works to stereoscope cards - were deemed dangerous to the intellectual and emotional lives of vulnerable consumers. She shows that these definitions often hinged as much on the content of texts as on their perceived capacity to distort the intellect and inflame the imagination.

Hardback book in "as new" condition in a similar unclipped dust wrapper. No marks or inscriptions. Not ex-library.
