Marital Impotence (And Other Topics) in Roman and Canon Law Simon, Johann Georg [1636-1696]. Brevis Delineatio Impotentiae Conjugalis. Diu Hactenus Desiderate Nunc Vero Denuo Revisa et Opposita Spuriis Exemplaribus Quae Vulgo Circumferuntur. Cum Indice Locupleto. Jena: Impensis Joh. Theodori Fleischeri, 1682. 209 [i.e. 208], [40] pp. Without the portrait frontispiece or additional title page present in some copies. Quarto (7-3/4" x 5-3/4"). Later (nineteenth-century?) vellum from a manuscript leaf, hand-lettered title to spine, endpapers renewed. Light soiling to exterior, boards somewhat bowed, spine ends bumped, chip to foot of spine, rear joint just starting at head. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to interior, light foxing, faint dampstaining and light soiling in a few places, small ink letter to upper right corner of title page. $300. * Later edition. First published in dissertation form in 1665 and expanded in 1672, this interesting treatise discusses marital impotence and related sexual topics, including sodomy, adultery, incest and abortion, in Roman and canon law. Simon was a jurist from Halle who acquired his doctorate from the University of Jena and later taught there. The final edition appeared in 1718. Some copies of the 1682 edition have a portrait frontispiece of the author (and a smaller number have an additional title page dated 1680). All of the copies we have seen lack this frontispiece, suggesting that it may not have been issued with all copies. OCLC locates 7 copies of the 1682 edition in North America, 1 in a law library (Harvard). Verzeichnis der im Deutschen Sprachraum Erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhunderts 3:010301K.
