BIBLIOGRAPHY OF CIRCUMCISION; [extracts from the Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics and the Index-Catalogue of the Library of the Surgeon-General's Office]
Privately printed, 1930. Morocco spine, decorated in gilt, and cloth-covered boards. Marbled endpapers; head- and tail-bands. Minor rubbing; pencil annotations to front matter. Slight bowing to boards. Very good.. 4to. pp. 659-680; p. 194-195; pp. 652-653; pp. 1214-1216. Reprints sections on circumcision from reference works; includes text and references. pp. 659-680: Circumcision: Introductory (Louis H. Gray). American (Lewis Spence). Egyptian (George Foucart). Muhammadan (D.S. Margoliouth). Semitic (George A. Barton). The remaining pages are from the Index-Catalogue of the Library of the Surgeon-General's Office (1882, 1898, 1922). Pages appear in negative: white text on a black background; likely a photostat. The base of some pages bears a bar and reference numbers of the British Museum [Library], incorporated into the photographic process. Each two-page set was printed as one sheet and folded to produce a recto/verso page. Some blank pages are interleaved to provide material for notes or to pad out the volume. One blank page in the front matter bears penciled references to Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948). Laid in is a sheet citing three other references (works by A.M. Vergiat, E.M. Loeb, and Antonii Bynaei De natali Jesu Christi libri duo [Amsterdam, 1689]), along with a slip of paper noting Hastings' Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics. An unusual work; privately collated and bound with some attention to detail, presumably by/for some unknown researcher.
