[Stopes, Marie Carmichael] [Bennett, Arnold] London: A.C. Fifield, 1918. 8vo. [viii] 34pp. Cover is damp stained and paper covering boards is shrunk and warped. Text is bright with some light foxing.

The follow-up to Married Love, by one of the grandmothers of the sexual revolution, Marie Carmichael Stopes. An important document about the state of the art of birth control in the early 20th century by one of its earliest proponents. Stopes was a socialist, a suffragette, and pals with Margaret Sanger. And deeply problematic.

Note: the word "race" is used throughout, seemingly to denote the "human race," which is not to detract from the fact that Stopes was a proponent of eugenics and definitely sent love poems to Hitler.
