TISSOT, Samuel Auguste André David (1728--1797)
L'onanisme, dissertation sur les maladies produites par la masturbation. Par M. Tissot, ... Quatrieme édition considérablement augmentée.
A Lausanne chez Marc Chapuis, et Compagnie, 1769.
xiv, [2], 272 p. ; 15.8 cm. (12º)

First published in Latin with the title Tentamen de morbis ex manustupratione in 1758; the author's French translation first appeared in 1760. Although Tissot distances himself from the earlier treatise, the discussion of the consequences of masturbation is largely drawn from the anonymous early eighteenth-century work Onania, first published in 1716 (16th ed., 1737, q.v.).

Copy Notes Some pencil translations and annotations in the margins, probably in Soane's hand.

Binding C18th vellum, without spine-label or title.

Reference Number 4541
