Of much more importance in the history of the theory of sexual inversion was the work of Richard von Krafft-Ebing (born at Mannheim in 1840 and died at Graz in 1902), for many years professor of psychiatry at Vienna University and one of the most distinguished alienists of his time. The historical portions of the book, which are of special interest, deal largely with the remarkable prevalence of inversion in England, neglected by previous investigators.

Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was a British 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, including transgender psychology.

Havelock Ellis: four books on psychology and sex. Ellis.

It was not my intention to publish a study of an abnormal manifestation of the sexual instinct before discussing its normal manifestations. It has happened, however, that this part of my work is ready first, and, since I thus gain a longer period to develop the central part of my subject, I do not regret the change of plan. I had not at first proposed to devote a whole volume to sexual inversion. Havelock Ellis: four books on psychology and sex.

Even though it's an old book it was still an interesting read just to see how something like homosexuality was viewed at that time.

for my kindle, needed something to read and I have always been interested in this subject. It Arrived before the estimated date, and in amazing condition. I really appreciate it, and it is very helpful and very convenient. Thank you.

Ellis (and Symonds) wrote in the General Preface to this 1897 book, "As a youth... A resolve slowly grew up within me: one main part of my life-work should be to make clear the problems of sex... As a youth, I hoped to settle problems for those who came after; now I am quietly content if I do little more than state them. For even that, I now think, is much... We want to get into possession of the actual facts, and from the investigation of the facts we want to ascertain what is normal and what is abnormal, from the point of view of physiology and of psychology... I regard sex as the central problem of life... [it] stands before the coming generations as the chief problem for solution. Sex lies at the root of life, and we can never learn to reverence life until we know how to understand sex."

He added in the Preface to this book, "It cannot be positively affirmed of all these persons that they were born inverted, but in most the inverted tendency seems to be instinctive, and appears at a somewhat early age. In any case, however, it must be realized that in this volume we ... are concerned with individuals who live in freedom, some of them suffering intensely from their abnormal organization, but otherwise ordinary members of society. In a few cases, we are concerned with individuals whose moral or artistic ideals have widely influenced their fellows who know nothing of the peculiar organization which has largely moulded these ideals."

He begins by noting, "Congenital sexual inversion---that is to say, sexual instinct turned by inborn constitutional abnormality towards persons of the same sex---is a comparatively rare phenomenon, so far as our knowledge at present extends. Sexual attraction between persons of the same sex, due merely to the accidental absence of the natural objects of sexual attraction, is, on the other hand, of universal occurrence among all human races and among most of the higher animals. It is only during recent years that sexual inversion has been recognized..." (Pg. 1)

He says, "An examination of my cases reveals the interesting fact that ... 66 per cent, possess artistic aptitude in varying degree... the artistic aptitudes are of high order. A taste for music is widespread among them... On the other hand, a decided taste for physical science is scarcely once to be found amongst them, though three happen to be medical men." (Pg. 123)

He asserts, "we must regard sexual inversion as largely a congenital phenomenon, or, to speak more accurately, as a phenomenon which is based on congenital conditions." (Pg. 129) He suggests, "We can seldom, therefore, safely congratulate ourselves on the success of any `cure' of inversion. The success is unlikely to be either permanent or complete, in the case of a decided invert; and in the most successful cases we have simply put into the invert's hands a power of reproduction which it is undesirable he should possess... The invert is not only the victim of his own abnormal obsession; he is the victim of social hostility." (Pg. 146)

He concludes, "We are bound to protect the helpless members of society against the invert. If we go further, and seek to destroy the invert himself before he has sinned against society, we exceed the warrant of reason..." (Pg. 158) He adds, "One thing has been made perfectly clear: whether congenital or acquired, homosexuality is not in itself a mark of mental deficiency or of moral degradation." (Pg. 292)

Ellis's work is one of the "classics" in the history of studies of human sexuality.

Ellis's 'Sexual Inversion' was first published in Germany in 1896. Its English publication became embroiled with controversy, due to the choice of a fraudulent publisher, and its sale in a shop associated with political radicalism. The police took the bookseller George Bedborough to court, and the book was found to be indecent. Subsequently Ellis refused to publish in the UK, and subsequent editions of the book were published in the USA. 'Sexual Inversion' became volume 2 of Ellis's seven volume 'Studies in the Psychology of Sex', published between 1898 and 1928.
For the uninitiated, 'sexual inversion' refers to 'homosexuality', in this case, homosexuality caused by a biological predisposition. Although the book is very dated, it is precisely the insight it offers into developing ideas about sex that makes it a valuable acquisition for any one seeking knowledge about sexology. Together with Krafft-Ebing's 'Psychopathia Sexualis' and Freud's 'Three Essays on Sexuality', it is--for lack of a better word--a seminal work in the field.

Havelock Ellis's life is an adventure in pure degeneracy. He could not achieve an erection unless he had a woman urinate on him. Read this guy's biography. Then Read Alfred Kinsey's.

Pseudoscience where a predetermined outcome is arrived at through rhetorical means without any evidence.

is this the same Havelock that once had a courts case vs. Clifford S. Heinz, the famed Heinz ketchup descendant? I would like to find out very much.
