Manhood

A very typical advert offering advice for men on what we would call "sexual health." I suspect they didn't get much for their money.

IT CONCERNS YOU

HOW LOST! HOW REGAINED
INVALUABLE REMARKS FOR YOUNG AND MIDDLE AGED MEN
4th EDITION
KNOW THYSELF, OR SELF-PRESERVATION. A little work in brief on NERVOUS DEBILITY, EXHAUSTED VITALITY, PREMATURE DECLINE, and all ACQUIRED DISEASES, and WEAKNESSES OF MAN, their CAUSE AND CURE.

Remarks on the subject of how to preserve the health when in possession of it, and how to regain it when lost. The best means of restoring brain fag, impaired memory, capacity for study or business, general debility of the system, and all wasting of the tissues. This little work will be found void of Latin phrases and fancy words, and will be found brief, precise and void of unnecessary reading. Fiften minutes spent in its perusal will teach the reader more than five days' reading. If you think IT CONCERNS YOU, it will be sent you in plain envelope and SEALED for Five Penny Stamps.

  1. I like how it says 4th edition. You won't see modern sex spammers revising their prattle. Sad how the craftsmanship has gone out the window, lol.
