Anthropophyteia Jahrbucher. Folkloristische Erhebungen und Forschungen zur Entwicklungeschichte der geschlechtlichen Moral
Leipzig: Deutsche Verlag-Aktien-Gesellschaft, 1904-1913. First Edition. 10 hardback volumes (I-X). Complete - although Krauss did later add supplementary volumes. Privately printed by Krauss. (From Vol. VII onwards publication is by the Ethnologischer Verlag). Some of the volumes are numbered, indicating a limited edition, but this is different with each volume. The Anthropophyteia is probably the most comprehensive collection of sexual folklore and ethnological sex research and one of the most important basic works on sex research and the history of customs and, in its outstanding achievement, the most important work in the life's work of FS Krauss. From Vol VII onwards, Freud contributed to the work. Red cloth with gilt titles to each volume. Overall in very good condition, with many of the pages uncut. A little bumping and edgewear overall.
