About this Item

Hardcover, bound in original blue cloth with title in gilt on spine, 339 pp. plus 60 pp. appendix and 6 pages of publishers advertisements appended at rear. Original brown coated endpapers. Illustrated with a black and white frontispiece and six full page chromolithographs depicting the various races: Caucasian, Mongolian, Oceanic, American Indian, Esquimaux [Eskimos], Negro. Second edition, published the same year as the first. Hinges strong and all pages firmly attached. Very mild shelf-wear to cloth and sporadic light marginal dampstain not affecting text or color plates. No name, no book-plate, no marking or underlining, etc. An early post Civil War example of "scientific" literature purporting to show the inferiority of the various races to the white man, in particular the Negro. These arguements fueled and supported many of the laws passes by cities and municipalites limiting the scope of Negro participation in the new post-war American democracy. As Douglas C. Baynton writes in his article 'Disability and the Justification of Inequality in American History', "By the turn of the century mediacl doctors were still arguing that African Americans were disabled by freedom and therefore in need of greater oversight." An important reminder of of America's checkered past as regards race and race relations. A well preserved copy in very good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory # 004700
