    A translation of Venette's Tableau de l'amour conjugal first published in 1686, the book is arranged in four parts with topics ranging from descriptions of anatomy to the difference between kissing an ugly girl and a pretty one.

The Mysteries of Conjugal Love Reveal'd proved to be extremely popular with several printings during the 18th century.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
