1869. This volume contains three essays on the powers of reproduction; with some account of the judicial congress as practiced in France during the 17th century. The reproductive powers of nature were regarded by the nations of remote antiquity with an awe and reverence so great, as to form an object of worship, under a symbol, of all others the most significant - the phallus; and thus was founded a religion, of which the traces exist to this day, not in Asia only, but even in Europe itself. It is hoped the reader will find much curious and interesting physiological information, interspersed with recherché and festivous anecdotes.
