Psychopathia Sexualis

Richard von Krafft-Ebbing, the author of this encyclopedia of unusual sexual preferences first published in 1886.

I read sections of it during my studies in psychology.  I found one edition that was in english, but with all of the explicit descriptions in Latin.  Therefore, only the most erudite of pervs may partake and understand.  

One case study that hit close to home for me, (there were several), was that of a young man and a servant girl in his family estate.  At the end of the days would recline in a window case I think.  There she would read and relax. Taking off her boots and stockings, the family dog came to lick her toes.  The young man was fascinated with this and begged permission to observe.  This went on for some time with the boy eventually taking the role of the dog, consuming the liquor of her daily toil.
