Jurgen: A Comedy of
by James Branch Cabell - 1919 - 360 pages
"My favourite twentieth-century case is the 1920 banning of James Branch Cabell's witty, harmlessly naughty fantasy Jurgen, thanks to John S. Sumner of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice. In the resulting trial, the publishers were acquitted -- partly because the judge believed the book's solemn but totally untrue introduction claiming that it was "based on the medieval legends of Jurgen".
The publicity sent Jurgen's sales sky-high, and Cabell's next book was respectfully dedicated to his benefactor John S. Sumner, who'd "glowingly advertised" him to the public. Cabell claimed to be specially impressed by Sumner's ability to unearth sexy meanings in anything: "I have applied your method to many of the Mother Goose rhymes with rather curious results ...""

The Family Shakespeare by Thomas Bowdler 1847
To bowdlerize means to self-righteously remove or modify passages one considers vulgar or objectionable. A medical doctor by the name of Thomas Bowdler, whose birthday was this day in 1754, gave new meaning to expurgation.
Dr. Bowdler gave up his medical practice to practice surgery on the works of William Shakespeare. He removed all those words “...which cannot with propriety be read aloud in a family” or which are “...unfit to be read aloud by a gentleman to a company of ladies.” He removed all the words and expressions which he considered to be indecent or impious from Shakespeare’s writings.

The Rise and Fall of Free Speech in America (one page unreadable) by David Wark Griffith 1916Prolegomena to the History of Israel: With a Reprint of the Article Israel from the Encyclopedia Brittanica
by Julius Wellhausen 1885
"Wellhausen was famous for his critical investigations into Old Testament history and the composition of the Hexateuch, the uncompromising scientific attitude he adopted in testing its problems bringing him into antagonism with the older school of biblical interpreters. He is perhaps most well-known for his Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels of 1883 (first published 1878 as Geschichte Israels), in which he advanced a definitive formulation of the Documentary hypothesis, arguing that the Torah or Pentateuch had its origins in a redaction of four originally independent texts dating from several centuries after the time of Moses, their traditional author. Wellhausen's hypothesis remained the dominant paradigm for Pentateuchal studies until the last quarter of the 20th century, when it began to be challenged by scholars who saw more and more hands at work in the Torah, ascribing them to periods even later than Wellhausen had proposed.
