Work by Charles R. Lohman and Joseph F. Trow, husband and brother respectively of American self-proclaimed female physician, Ann Trow Lohman (1811-1878), who sold contraceptives and provided abortions in New York City under the alias “Madame Restell." While Ann was imprisoned for an abortion she had performed, physician Charles and druggist Joseph published this self-help work under the pseudonym “A. M. Mauriceau.”
The work contains advice about contraception and related topics. It also promotes Lohman and Trow's businesses, advertising the sale of condoms and a French spermicide called “M. Desomeaux’s Preventive to Conception.” The digitized material from this work includes two in-text advertisements for M. Desomeaux's contraception pills.
