Anthropological, Legal, and Medical Studies on Pederasty in Europe by Tarnowsky, Benjamin

1933 Falstaff Press

Seems to be a prurient historical study of sexual relations between consenting adult males and prepubescent boys, cloaked in the guise of anthropology. Edition limited to 1500 copies,

Falstaff Press was a "private" United States publisher of risqué books and anthropologica. Their first publication was Musk, Hashish and Blood in 1900. The publishing house was run by Ben and Anne Rebhuhn. On November 26, 1935, an indictment was filed naming Ben Rebhuhn, Anne Rebhuhn and Ben Raeburn as defendants, a violation of 18 USC § 334, 18 USCA § 334, in that they sent obscene matter through the mails. Louis Shomer was called as a government witness at the May 1939 trial where the three were convicted.

The Anthropological Press was one of their imprints. Their books blurred where the scholarly ended and the prurient began. Similar publishers included Panurge Press.
