Amsterdam: Querido, 1933. Thick 8vo, (vi), 108pp. With 50 plates and 480 so-called film-reels (flip-book images), with captions. Original red cloth lettered in gilt, small tear to head of upper joint. otherwise very good. First edition. Van de Velde (1873-1937), a Dutch gynecologist and sexologist, made his fame by writing sexual "manuals", with for the time great frankness. This work deals with female body-culture, including a description of the sexual organs. The so-called film-stroken (film-reels) at end of volume, serve, when fanned quickly, "moving" pictures of the female [nude/sparsely clothed] body, a revolution in those days.
