This unusual work in German language, written in Dorpat (today Tartu, Estonia) by a scientist Alexander Brandt analyses the modern feminism with a help of botany, zoology, history and elderly texts, sayings and poems. The author appears to be especially troubled with a question of the female sexual liberation.

Alexander (von) Brandt, from the well-known German family of zoologists and scientists, active mostly in Russia, was a born in Saint Petersburg and later became a professor of zoology at the Faculty for Mathematics and Science in Tartu. This book was published three years before his death, when he was 85 years old.

The work is rare on the market and only appears in 4 German libraries and in 4 abroad (Universität Zürich, National Library of Israel, UNH Durham – Dimond Library, New York Public Library).
