"Navel fetishism, belly button fetishism, or alvinophilia is a partialism in which an individual is attracted to the human navel. ... Sometimes literary works focusing on navels or which sexually symbolize navels can also act as stimuli to navel fetishists. One such work is Navel Revue by author Jay Hahn-Lonne which is an autobiographical study of a man's obsession with navels." [wiki]

From the Foreword, this the printed version of a talk given by Hahn-Lonne in 1920, to "prominent Philadelphians", wherein the author talked of "delectable dents ... a fascinating subject for speculation which has scarcely been scratched..."

A quite rare book on the subject- at the time of cataloguing, we find none currently on the market; per RBH, none having been on the market and, per an OCLC search, none held in institutional holdings.

Price: $250.00
