Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

"The book which most deserved to be banned would be a catalogue of banned books" (G 37 in R. J. Hollingdale's translation and numeration) is an aphorism by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-99).

In original German it reads "Das Buch, das in der Welt am ersten verboten zu werden verdiente, wäre ein Catalogus von verbotenen Büchern."
