First edition

Jacques MOREAU Histoire naturelle de la femme, suivie d'un traité d'hygiène

Jacques MOREAU

Histoire naturelle de la femme, suivie d'un traité d'hygiène

Chez L. Duprat, Letellier, à Paris 1803, in-8 (12x20cm), (4) 358pp. et 360 - 744p. et (4) 459pp., 3 volumes reliés.

First Edition, illustrated with 11 plates including 7 folding (anatomy, hermaphrodite sex, Hottentot ...). Full Sheepskin rooted contemporary. Smooth back decorated with boxes to the grotesque. Part of title and volume number in morocco beige. Roulette cold-framing on the boards. Upper joint split head of Volume I, and lower tail and head. A lack of volume III head. Pretty good copy costs. Without prejudice to the time, and judging things essentially naturalistic, finding and bringing the facts to his knowledge, this story of the woman, not only throughout history but in the nations (the hotentots are often studied) is fascinating in more ways than one, especially because the author never falls into a pure naturalism but still questioned the report of a fact to all components of the feminine, as social components, clothing, cultural and traditional and physical. The health treaty forming the third volume is a physiological Treaty Moreau analyzing the consequences of this behavior on physiology, sensitivity and female characteristics. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
