"The following volume, describing a number of the most celebrated monuments, consisting of towers pillars and stones connected with Phallism, exhibits and illustrated many of the peculiar features of that singular worship, and the wide extent of territory over which it prevailed.
A large share of it has been devoted to a description of Phallic remains in the kingdom of Ireland, particularly of those mysterious towers, the solution of whose origin and uses has exercised the minds of the learned and ingenious for centuries. The same objects have been traced in various other parts of the world, and many of their kindred monuments in the shape of the holed stones and pillars have been shown to exist even in our own land.”
Only a very limited number were printed.
Octavo, bound in cream paper boards decorated in red with bevelled edges, 76 pages, etched frontipiece, edges uncut, mild browning to spine, small splashed stain on cover, in fine condition otherwise.
