Sexualpathologie: ein Lehrbuch für Aerzte und Studierende
Magnus Hirschfeld. 1921
Under the liberal atmosphere of the newly founded Weimar Republic, Magnus Hirschfeld, a German physician and sexologist, purchased a villa not far from the Reichstag building in Berlin founding the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (Institute for Sexual Research), which opened on 6 July 1919. The Institute housed Hirschfeld's immense archives and library on sexuality, the Museum of Sex and provided educational services and medical consultations.
Published shortly after the opening of the Institute, this textbook for physicians and students, is split into three parts covering “Disorders in sexual development, with special regard to masturbation”, “Sexual transitions, the manly woman and the feminine man” and “Sexual disorders in metabolism, with special regard to impotence”.
