Regarding the German 1885 edition, “A vast amount of data concerning every aspect of woman is collected into these volumes...all treated at length in what has become a standard and authoritative work... An English translation by E. J. Dingwall...has added much to the value of both text and plates,” Garrison Morton 179. [A]
