Frigidity in Women: its Characteristics and Treatment, Bergler, Dr. Edmund; Hitschmann, Dr. Eduard

Translated from the German by Polly Leeds Weil. Nervous and Mental Disease Monograph Series No. 60. Brown boards. Index. The authors are noted on the title page as being the Director and Assistant Director of the Psychoanalytic Clinic in Vienna, and were in Freud's circle of followers, sharing a common preoccupation with female frigidity until they all emigrated from Nazi Germany in the immediate years following publication of this book. Some unsubstantiated theorizing in this book about how "the female sex manifests deficiency in the realm of sexual gratification", how women do not attain "complete genitality" until they have been "deflowered" and this oddly phrased statement tossed off as fact: "Woman's destiny to be complete must also include child-bearing and suckling." ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 76 pages

New York and London D. Appleton & Company 1915 First Printing Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket; Underlining and notes to two pages. 
Green cloth with titles stamped in gilt on spine. Jastrow was a Polish-born professor of the young science of psychology at the University of Wisconsin for nearly forty years.

In this volume, published after his first nervous breakdown, he details his theories about perceived sexual and racial differences in human behavior filtered through the lens of his own biases and prejudices; to whit, his explanations of female hysteria, "the yellow peril", and this gem: "Speaking broadly, the negro mind has been adequate to follow and adopt the patterns of activity evolved by a culture rated as vastly superior, infinitely more complex than that is which he would now find himself, had he remained in his original habitat." xviii, 596 pp. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
