    With well over a hundred separate monographs and over fifty pen and ink illustrations this book tells you tells you all or possibly than you want to know about katoptronolagnia, nipiomimetophilia and many other beastly practises you never knew existed.Obviously well researched by the indefatigable and self sacrificing Rev E St J Croom , and containing illustrative anecdotes along with scientific explanation, one can use this volume as a textbook, an instruction manual, or a kind of historical t [...]
