The Intersexes: A Study of Semisexualism as a Problem in Social Life
NP: ND [Rome 1908]. 647pp - NP: ND [Rome 1908]. 647pp. The first and most important study of homosexuality written by an American at the turn of the century. Prime-Stevenson, an American expatriate, writing under the pseudonym "Xavier Mayne" was the author of this massive treatise on the literature, psychology and history of homosexuality, which is groundbreaking in many respects. The author incorporates his own views on the nature of homosexuality (that it is inborn and should therefore not be persecuted) and discusses a wide selection of contemporary politics, literature and culture to support his thesis. For further discussion, see Gifford, Dayneford's Library; Dynes, Encyclopedia of Homosexuality (1250); Bullough 187; Summers 686-87. Original printed green wrappers. First edition, number 2 of 125 numbered copies. Though in original wrappers, this copy is trimmed, as apparently issued, and consequently a little smaller than the copy above. Paper a little browned; edges a little faded; very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
