London: J. How, 1684.
The first sex manual in English, neither by Aristotle or a "masterpiece", provided its readers with practical advice on copulation, conception, pregnancy and birth.This anonymous, inexpensively printed work proved to be enormously popular: At least three editions were issued by J. How in 1684, and literally hundreds of editions and translations followed, right up to the early decades of the 20th century.
