18.  HIRSCHFELD, Magnus Sittengeschichte des Weltkrieges. (Inscribed by the Author). Leipzig-Wien, Verlag für Sexualwissenschaft Schneider & Co., (1930). Vol. 1. Original cloth with dust jacket. XX, 416 p. Richly illustrated. First edition. DJ a bit coffee stained. Binding worn, damaged and a bit warped.

* Poor copy, but with 3-line AUTHOR'S DEDICATION: 's.l. Dr. Günter Tessmann,/ der hochverdienter Erforscher/ der Seelen u. Sitten der Völker/ (hard to read, possibly 'vom Herausgeber')/ Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld./ Berlin I.f.S.W. 2/IX 30.'.

In turn, Tessmann gave the book to Felix Bryk, the Swedish anthropologist and entomologist, author of Dark Rapture. The Sex-life of The African Negro (1939), which is a translation of Neger-Eros (1928), as is testified by an inscription of Tessmann, dated 'Berlin, den 11 August 1936'. Anthropologist and explorator Günter Tessmann (1884-1969) went into exile to Brazil from Nazi-Germany in 1936.

(s.l. = 'seinem lieben': 'to his dear Dr. Günter Tessmann, the outstanding researcher of the minds and customs of the nations, from the publisher Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. Berlin, Institute for Sexual Science, September 2 1930'. Tessmann's dedication: 'To his dear Felix Bryk in friendly remembrance to Dr. Günter Tessmann'.)

About the work of anthropologists Tessmann (who appears to have been bisexual) and Bryk and their relevance for Hirschfeld, there is a very interesting article in Anthropologica. Vol. 48, No. 2, 2006. '"Bisexuality" and the Politics of Normal in African Ethnography' by Mark Epprecht, p. 187-202.

Books inscribed by Hirschfeld are rare.
