New York City: The Critic and Guide Co., 1917. Thirteenth Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good / No Dustjacket. Item #058797
Prior owners' ink stamps at the front endpapers and some finger marks on the page block edges, otherwise crisp and clean; binding is gently relaxed, but square and secure; hard cover has some softening and rubbing at the spine ends and corners, a few small, dark spots on the back and a scattering of tiny, dull but not discolored, drip spots on the front, and two tiny scuffs at the left rear, otherwise excellent. 249pp. + catalog of author's other works. There is a compassion in this book if one looks past outdated social beliefs; the author is concerned about hygiene, the protection of families, the prevention of overpopulation; and he makes a case, not unreasonable, that properly used birth control would increase the stability and success of our society.
