Boston: American Unitarian Association, 1903. David Starr Jordan (1851-1931) was a noted scientist and educator who became the Founding President of Stanford University in 1891. Later he would be a peace advocate, Director of the Sierra Club, and a witness in the Scopes trial. Unfortunately, he was also prominent in the Eugenics movement, which advocated the forced sterilazation of the "unfit." Here is his tract on that now-discredited subject. This is a Near Fine copy of the First Edition, which is uncommon to scarce. Tan paper-covered boards with a linen spine. Lettering on the cover is gilt, and red on the spine. Top edge is gilt; others are rough-cut. Clean and fresh text; 82 pages. Tiny bit of soiling on the back edge of the spine, else a Fine copy. An extremely attractive little book that contains some decidedly un-attractive ideas that were quite popular among "Progressives," until they reached fruition in Nazi Germany. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. First Edition.
