Slight bumping to head and foot of spine, rubbing to corners but overall in very good condition. Contents are in excellent condition.

Volume I being offered here is the November 1897 reissue (under the title Studies in the Psychology of Sex) of Sexual Inversion, co-authored with John Addington Symonds. This first edition was almost immediately withdrawn and the November 1897 edtion was published under Ellis's sole name but with the October 1897 preface. Volume II, dated 1900, is the true first ...

London: Samson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington 1889, 1889. First edition. 8vo. (200x125mm). pp. [vi, advertisements], xii, 308, 6, [10, advertisements]. Endpapers are also advertisements. Original cream cloth, lettered in black to spine. Soiling to upper cover and browning and some marking to spine. Contents in very good condition. Overall a nice copy of the first edition of this important work in which Emerson famously made the claim for photography as a "Pictorial Art", a claim he later rescinded in the 1899 third edition but not before amateur photographers had taken him at his word and begun to experiment with artistic techniques in their work. In many ways, Emerson's Naturalistic Photography was the book that opened up the world of art photography to the talented amateur, an influence that lasts today.
