New York: Oxford University Press, 1988. Paperbound . BINDING/CONDITION: an oversize paperback; Good condition. Well illustrated in black and white. Following is taken from the author's preface: ''This is a book filled with the dangerous fantasies of the Beautiful People of a century ago. It contains a few scenes of exemplary virtue and many more of lurid sin. Much of it deals with magnificent dreams of intellectual achievement doomed to wither before the tempting presence of woman, who throughout these pages, is to be found dragging man into a grim trough of perversion. In short, this book is about what and how, during the second half of the nineteenth century, men came to think about women -- and why.''
