This volume has the distinction of not being permitted to be published in the English language in Great Britain, hence it appears in the German, and its first English edition comes to light in this country. It is a scientific treatise, and as such we do not see exactly how it could be ruled out, though undoubtedly the English authorities recognized the fact that it would be sought for by those who were not scientifically minded, and thus come under the condemnation which we recently gave Krafft-Ebing's work on a somewhat allied subject. The present volume seems much less objectionable in its management of its theme than does that of Krafft-Ebing.
