A collection of rare French pamphlets on the subject of differences in sex development from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Two of the three pamphlets are doctoral theses, covering the social impact of differences in sex development, and persistent müllerian duct syndrome (‘tubular hermaphroditism’) in men. The third covers vulval fibromas (‘molluscum pendulum’), a subject now not classified as intersex but then categorised as ‘faux hermaphrodisme’.
