Bibliotheca Germanorum Erotica & Curiosa, Vols 1 to 9
HAYN, Hugo; GOTENDORF, Alfred N.
"Verzeichnis der gesamten deutschen erotischen Literatur mit Einschluß der Übersetzungen, nebst Beifügung der Originale." Along with the work of Jules Gay, this is considered the most important bibliography of erotica. The richness of the German discourse on sexual experience is proven by these volumes, and the entries include many titles that no longer exist, destroyed by war or censorship. German text.
