Excerpt from Flagellation in France From a Medical and Historical Standpoint
Who has never yet turned his attention to any description of this fascinating idiosyncracy, will be astonished, delighted, amused and perhaps disgusted, as the case may be. Even the latter contingency will please us, for if our little work only saves one reader, out of the purchasers of the whole edition, from becoming an absolute slave to the rod, our labour will not have been in vain.
