the complete name for this book is: Creative and sexual science, or, Manhood, womanhood, and their mutual interrelations : love, its laws, power, etc.; selection, or mutual adaptation; courtship, married life, and perfect children; their generation, endowment, paternity, maternity, bearing, nursing and rearing; together with puberty, boyhood, girlhood, etc.; sexual impairments restored, male vigor and female health and beauty perpetuated and augmented, etc., as taught by phrenology and physiology (1875)

that has to set a record as the longest name for a book. This is from 1875 and kind of interesting. It's leatherbound, but the spine has been removed and replaced w/ unwritten leather and the real spine has been glued to the inside of the book - i guess to keep curious innocents from corruption. i've found 1971 reprints for sale, but haven't been able to find a value for this original edition. does anyone have any info?
