From the cover: “Anyone who has asked for Krafft-Ebing at the British Museum knows what it is like to be treated like a prurient schoolboy. In fact the levels of censorship are pretty elaborate. The ‘Cupboard’ books, sexological or mildly erotic, are never seen without a personal interview with an official. To see any of the 5,000 pornographic items in the Private Case, you must first submit a written application. Finally there is the ‘S.S.’: libellous and confidential books, never seen by anyone, their very titles being suppressed.
