Descrizione
This work is a multum in par-no Of the growth and spread Of Phallicism, as we commonly call the worship Of nature or fertilizing powers. I felt, when solicited to enlarge and illustrate it on the sudden' death of the lamented author, that it would be desecration to touch so complete a compendium by one of the most competent and soundest thinkers who have written on this world-wide faith. None knew better or saw more clearly than Mr. Westropp that in this Oldest symbolism and worship lay the foundations Of all the goodly systems we call Religions; but unfortunately, though writing, clearly, he has only left to us short and somewhat detached Essays, this being the longest I have come across. It was, therefore, with deep concern I heard of his death, and saw his perhaps last note pencilled at the end of the proof-sheets Confined to bed with a severe attack Of dyspepsia.
