    Ulrich (1825-1895), a lawyer, classical scholar and openly gay man who publicly defended the rights of homosexuals, wrote the twelve tracts included in this two-volume set between 1864 and 1880. The work surveys literary, historical, physiological and other data, turning then to embryology. He contends that homosexuality results from the crossing of generative principles in the first stages of foetal development. “Ulrich’s monumental study deeply influenced an entire generation of sex researchers, including Richard von Kraft-Ebing and Havelock Ellis.” Translated by Michael A. Lombardi-Nash. Foreword by Vern L. Bullough.
