Edward Sellon’s ‘Annotation to the Sacred Writings of the Hindus’ was published in a very limited edition in London, in 1865. Widely condemned at the time, his work draws on several of the texts that touch on the sexual rites practiced by tantrik sects. This eBook republishes this work complete with diacritics and extensive end notes in addition to a valuable introduction by Mike Magee linking Sellon’s work to the development of tantric sects in the Western world.
