KIRKUS REVIEW

The original seven volumes on which Ellis' fame largely rests have been made available at last for the general public in two volume form. The complete text is there; there is some change of order, to conform with Ellis' own wishes; there is an introduction by Morris Ernst, tracing the changed attitude of the public towards sex and sex literature. These studies are a classic. The main thread is the study of normal sexuality, not the pathological variants, and the abnormal is viewed in relation to the normal. The format is excellent. The volumes are not too bulky, thanks to thin paper; the binding is strong and good looking (in contrast to the text-booky drabness of the original edition). The paging follows the individual volumes, and the indexing follows each volume, with cumulative indexes at the end. A good job.
