About this Item: Rinehart & Co., Inc, New York, 1954. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition with the circled R on the copy right page. "The influence of comic books on today's youth" Seduction of the Innocent is a book by American psychiatrist Fredric Wertham, published in 1954, that warned that comic books were a negative form of popular literature and a serious cause of juvenile delinquency. The first printing contained a bibliography listing the comic book publishers cited, but fears of lawsuits compelled the publisher to tear the bibliography page from any copies available, so copies with an intact bibliography are rare. This copy has a photo copy of these 2 pages laid in. A very good clean copy in VG dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 004836
