Abstract:  "The five letters of which the Elements of Tuition are composed contain a number of common-place anecdotes about flagellation, told in the most tedious manner and in language frequently ungrammatical. The Dedicatory Epistle to Signora Birchini embraces many of the remarks upon the subject which I have already offered elsewhere, and is the best part of the book. The Anecdotes of Lady Flaybum contain one tale almost identical, and some verses quite the same, as those comprised in the body of the book." (→ Fra85)

Abstract:  "The earliest definitely described medical case of sadistic pleasure in the sight of active whipping I have myself come across belongs to the year 1672, and occurs in a letter in which Nesterus seeks the opinion of Garmann. He knows intimately, he states, a very learned man - whose name, for the honor he bears him, he refrains from mentioning - who, whenever in a school or elsewhere he sees a boy unbreeched and birched, and hears him crying out, at once emits semen copiously without any erection, but with great mental commotion. The same accident frequently happens to him during sleep, accompanied by dreams of whipping." (→ Ell42, Band I "Love and Pain", S. 132)
