[…] with a foreword by Robert Latou Dickinson, M.D., Harper & Brothers, Publisher, and Paul B. Hoeber, Inc., Medical Books. The authors hold the 1951 copyright. And indeed, that is what the book is: not fly patterns, but patterns of sexual behavior. And I wonder how many copies of these were printed, and how many of those, like this one, got away.
Maybe it is worth something -- like upside-down stamps.ReplyDelete
And I'm assuming the book isn't about the sexual behaviour patterns of flies?ReplyDelete
Most interesting! Maybe this was some publishing strategy to allow people to read the book in public without feeling embarrassed?
I truly believe it was a printer's mistake. No one's going to emboss a spine when they can just trade dust jackets. Edson's book was a big deal, and one can easily find the other online as well with its real dust jacket!ReplyDelete
Ditto Dona. Never underestimate the buying power of a collector!ReplyDelete
My question is the same as Helen's. Is it the sexual behaviour of flies? And if so, how big is the book?ReplyDelete
The one that got away. Nice ending.ReplyDelete
Love the ending. (And this caused a first rate discussion above!)ReplyDelete
