£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Works of Aristotle: Containing His Complete Masterpiece and Family Physician; His Experienced Midwife; His Book of Problems and His Remarks on Physiognomy.

An interesting little copy of this sex manual and midwifery book.

It falls into the class of Pseudo-Aristotelian works by authors of medical treatises who falsely attribute their work to the Greek philosopher. It is known as Aristotle's masterpiece. It was popular in England from early modern period through to the 20th century. It was first published in 1684 by an unknown author was banned in Britain until the 1960s.

With coloured plates of medical diagrams and a double page plate of the human gestation period.

Tipped in (p205) is a note to those living outside larger towns, or who would prefer to buy through the post, that the publisher can supply Guaranteed Rubber Goods at lowest prices. Although the book is undated, we think it was printed between 1920 and 1940.

CONDITION: In a full cloth binding. Externally, sound with some rubbing, most noticeably to the spine. Small tear on front inner paper (see photograph for details).
Internally, binding is rather tender, again not unusual due to its thickness. Pages are toned but otherwise clean with just the occasional handling mark. Page edges are dyed red with top edge showing moderate black spotting. Dust jacket showing signs of age, some yellowing and on the back cover is a strip of wear (see photograph for details). No inscriptions or notations.
