A Monograph on Albinism in Man [Six Volumes, with Manuscript Letter]
London, 1911-1913. Folio, card stock covers. Published as part of the Drapers' Company Memoirs. Six volumes (three text and three atlas volumes), 524 + 136, xxiii pp. + 185 + ZZ + LIX plates. Complete, though it consists of Parts 1,2 and 4. Contains many photographs of ablinism in various subjects. Unfortunately the volumes sustained water damage at some point, and the first and third plate volumes have heavy moisture damage to a portion of the pages, with some pages sticking together. The text volumes fared better, and are good to very good with some staining to the boards of the fourth volume. Remains usable as a research set despite the rough condition. OCLC notes the copy at the Cornell Library with these volumes only, and a previous bookseller note states that Vol. 3 was never published. There are no records of a third volume in OCLC. Includes a manuscript letter to Dr. Hugh S. Stannus, anthropologist and son of Hugh Hutton Stannus, thanking Stannus for the examples of "negro albino hair" delivered to the authors for the project. Pearson, a eugenicist and statistician, contributed lasting works in the area of medical statistics. Nettleship's earlier work on the subject is noted: "In 1869 Nettleship published the first description of the skin disorder urticaria pigmentosa. In later life he actively supported the eugenics movement, while engaged on a study of albinism with Karl Pearson." - DNB. See Garrison-Morton 1706, 1711, 1716.1, 4057. OCLC 14785378.
