This is an auction for THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SEX by Havelock Ellis.

From Wikipedia:

"Henry Havelock (1859 – 1939), was an English physician, writer, and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, as well as transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis... The researches begun for Man and Woman (1894) led to his major work, Studies in the Psychology of Sex (1897–1928). Publication of the first volume resulted in a trial during which the judge hearing the case called claims for the book’s scientific value “a pretence, adopted for the purpose of selling a filthy publication.” Other volumes of the work were published in the United States and until 1935 were legally available only to the medical profession. Ellis’ Studies in the Psychology of Sex is a comprehensive and ground-breaking encyclopaedia of human sexual biology, behaviour, and attitudes. In separate volumes he examined such topics as homosexuality, masturbation, and the physiology of sexual behaviour. Ellis viewed sexual activity as the healthy and natural expression of love, and he sought to dissipate the fear and ignorance that characterized many people’s attitudes toward human sexuality. His work helped to foster the open discussion of sexual problems, and he became known as a champion of women’s rights and of sex education..."
