Havelock Ellis (1859-1939) was a British physician and psychologist, as well as progressive thinker, writer, and social reformer. He co-authored the first English-language medical textbook on homosexuality and is credited with introducing the ideas of narcissism and autoreroticism.

This particular work, 'Studies in the Psychology of Sex' is complete in two volumes. The final copyright for this work is 1942. The final copyright for this book attributed to the author is 1937.

The first volume is as follows:
Part One: The Evolution of Modesty / The Phenomena of Sexual Periodicity / Auto-Eroticism
Part Two: Analysis of the Sexual Impulse / Love and Pain / The Sexual Impulse in Women
Part Three: Sexual Selection in Man
Part Four: Sexual Inversion

The second volume is as follows:
Part One: Erotic Symbolism / The Mechanism of Detumescense / The Psychic State in Pregnancy
Part Two: Eonism and Other Supplementary Studies
Part Three: Sex in Relation to Society

These are in fantastic vintage condition. There are occasional underlinings in pencil, and the slipcover is coming apart at a top seam (see photo), but the pages are clean and complete, and the bindings tight. Each volume measures just over 8-1/2" high (9" in the slipcover). Light tan buckram with gilt lettering on maroon band front and spine.

A wonderful library addition, and just maybe the first formal education on the subject...:)
