Description
 
Christian Ratsch (au). Details our obsessive & successful search for aphrodisiacs. From intriguing potions popular in ancient Pompeii to Chinese opium dens of the 19th cent., to our modern fascination with unorthodox uses for such common plants as garlic & ginger, this is a book for the lover in all of us. Erotic & unusual myths, poems, superstitions, & legends are illustrated by a sensual, dazzling array of art from Egyptian hieroglyphics to medieval tapestries, whimsical Tibetan folk art to erotic Asian paintings. A detailed, photo-illus. listing of 100 plants gives info. on their  aphrodisiacal properties. Dozens of age-old recipes for beverages, ointments, pills, incenses, & snuffs give graphic testimonial to just how far people have been willing to go in the name of love.
