A history of the earliest lesson-book for children to use themselves.
First published in English as "The Horn Book; a girl's guide to the knowledge of good and evil - or modern studies in the science of stroking", is as the title may suggest, a nineteenth century sex manual for young inexperienced ladies that not only provides the descriptive instruction to 63 unique sexual positions, but also describes various techniques on tribadism, advanced methods for the onanist and lessons in the prevention of fecundation. Based on the French publication of "Instruction libertine, ou Dialogues entre Charles et Justine sur la theorie physique de l'amour et les diverses manieres de s'en procurer les plaisirs materiels" - This edition is as the original unabridged translation and provides an erotic, entertaining and educating read.
Set in Oregon in the early years of the twentieth century, H. L. Davis's Honey in the Horn chronicles the struggles faced by homesteaders as they attempted to settle down and eke out subsistence from a still-wild land. With sly humor and keenly observed detail, Davis pays homage to the indomitable character of Oregon's restless people and dramatic landscapes without romanticizing or burnishing the myths. An essential book for all serious readers of Northwest literature, this classic coming-of-age novel has been called the "Huckleberry Finn of the West." It is the only Oregon book that has ever won a Pulitzer Prize for fiction. With a new introduction by Richard W. Etulain, this path-breaking work from one of Oregon's premier authors is once again available for a new generation to enjoy.
