Other Erotica

Amazon. The Perfumed Garden by [sic] Richard Francis Burton. Reader says

"This is a very erotic book because of the illustrations. I found mine at a public library- downtown branch- This is a book that celebrates human love and sexuality better than any other I have ever read."

Web Archive: Amazon. Priapeia: sive diversorum poetarum in Priapum lusus Burton and L. C. Smither's translation of the Priapus poems is available from "Wordsworth Classic Erotica," (mostly filthy 19c novels) who removed the Latin and whose webpage doesn't even know Burton was involved! It has amusing appendices on "irrumation" and "depilation by catamites," etc.

by Richard W. Hooper. Modern, reliable and stylish translation, without Burton's panache for footnotes and appendices.
