On Krafft-Ebing's principal work, 

Psychopathia Sexualis: eine Klinisch-Forensische Studie (Sexual Psychopathy: A Clinical-Forensic Study), which was first published in 1886 and expanded in subsequent editions. The last edition from the hand of the author (the twelfth) contained a total of 238 case histories of human sexual behaviour.

 

Psychopathia Sexualis is a forensic reference book for psychiatrists, physicians, and judges. Written in an academic style, its introduction noted that, to discourage lay readers, the author had deliberately chosen a scientific term for the title of the book and that he had written parts of it in Latin for the same purpose.

 

   The first edition of Psychopathia Sexualis (1886) presented four categories of what Krafft-Ebing called 'cerebral neuroses':

paradoxia (sexual desire at wrong time of life), 

anesthesia (insufficient sexual desire), 

hyperesthesia (excessive sexual desire) and

paraesthesia (misdirected sexual desire).

Futura, designed by Paul Renner

and released by Bauer in 1927.

The groundbreaking design inspired many similar followers, but also virtually direct copies and imports such as Airport (Baltotype, 1930s), Europe (Deberny & Peignot, 1929), Spartan (ATF/Linotype,1939), and Twentieth Century (Monotype,1959). Imported to US by Bauer sometime after its release, and for the Intertype machine around 1930.
