Very gently read. Interior is relatively clean other than the previous owners name in pencil to the ffep and stamp to the title page. The frontispiece, a photo of Sanger and her two sons, is detached and laid in. Blue paper boards (hardcover) are soiled and rubbed to extremities. 1cm chips to the head and tail of the spine, titles unaffected. Without dustjacket. (As issued?) Sanger opened the first birth-control clinic in the United States. An advocate for women's reproductive rights, she was also a vocal enthusiast for the abhorrent practice of eugenics. It's a complicated legacy and periodically results in criticism on the organization she helped found: Planned Parenthood.
