1 Lacroix, Paul History of Prostitution Among all the People of the World, from the Most Remote Antiquity to the Present Day 3 Volumes
Chicago Pascal Covici, Publisher 1926 Hardcover Very Good 
Three volumes (600 pages) , 3 frontispieces, boards, cloth backstrip, paper label, very good. "This edition of History of Prostitution, in three volumes, issued to subscribers only, is limited to twelve hundred and fifty numbered sets, of which this is Number 362." From the translator's foreword: "The History of Prostitution, by Paul LaCroix, 'Pierre Dufour' or 'Bibliophile Jacob, ' as its author was variously known to the reading public of the 19th century, is not a work of literature, though it may possess literary qualities. It is not even a work of pure science, though it already has proved its value to the savants of sex, who have drawn upon it freely. It is, rather, one of the most curious and most human of documents and, as such, an invaluable source book to scientist or literateur. " FR5-2
