1611. Divorce Due to Sexual Dysfunction Tagereau, Vincent. Discours sur l'Impuissance de l'Homme et de la Femme. Auquel est Declare, Que c'est qu'Impuissance Empeschant & Separant le Marriage. Paris: N. Rousset [Roussel], 1611. [viii], 191, [1] pp. Octavo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Later paper-covered boards. Light rubbing to extremities. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, faint dampspotting to a few leaves. Side-notes affected in a few places by shaving, minor tears to margins of a few leaves. Early underlining to some passages in faint pencil, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy of a scarce work. * First edition. A treatise on the dissolution of marriage due to sexual dysfunction. The legal procedure, called "epreuve du congres," was humiliating: before a jury of lawyers, judges and witnesses, the man had to show whether or not he was able to fulfill the duties imposed by marriage. Apparently, testimony sufficed when dealing with female dysfunction. Later editions were published in 1612 and 1655, with reissues of the 1612 edition in 1887, 1900 and 2013. All editions and reissues are scarce. OCLC locates 7 copies of the first edition, 2 in North America (Harvard Law School, UCLA). Another copy located at GWU Law School. Camus, Bibliotheque Choisie des Livres de Droit 1489.
