About this Item

Very good copy in the original gilt-blocked cloth. Spine bands and panel edges slightly dust-toned and rubbed as with age. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong. Provenance: From the Signet Library with their bookplate to front pastedown.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 185 pages; Physical description: 185 p. ; 22 cm. Notes: "Part I . originally published in Professor Stanley Hall's American Journal of Religious Psychology for July, 1911; and in the Revue d'Ethnographie et de Sociologie of the same date." --Note, verso t.p. In this ground-breaking study of homosexuality, Edward Carpenter reviews an extensive body of literature, including accounts of Shamans and Bedarches (transgenders) in tribal society, and same-sex unions in ancient Greece and feudal Japan. This book includes much that has a direct bearing on issues of gay spirituality, including a discussion of the Kedushim, the priests of the ancient Near Eastern Goddess religion, and target of the Levitical anti-sodomy and anti-cross-dressing regulations. There is also a mention of the sanctioned Christian male same-sex unions in the Balkans, which gives a new dimension to recent controversies. The chapter on same-sex unions in feudal Japan is also of particular interest, as it deals with a topic very rarely dealt with by western writers. Subjects: Sex -- Homosexuality -- Culture and society. 1 Kg. Bookseller Inventory # 213589
