A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF EUGENICS. University of California Publications in Zoology, Volume XXV, Edited by (Used)

by Holmes, Samuel


Binding: Hardcover

Book ID: 11637, 11637


Berkeley: University of California 1924, large 8vo, smartly rebound in green cloth with gilt lettered spine, original wrappers silked, 514pp, vg-f copy. The bibliography is organized by subject: Heredity and Evolution, Eugenics and Works of a General Character, Genealogy, The Problem of Degeneracy, The Heredity of Human Traits, Heredity of Human Defect, Inheritance of Feeble-Mindedness, Inheritance of Epilepsy, Inheritance of Insanity, Inheritance of Deafness, The Heredity Factor in Tuberculosis, Alcohol and Heredity: Alcohol in Relation to Heredity; Lead Poisoning; Blastophthoria, Radical Influence of Venereal Disease, The Heredity Factor in Crime, The Heredity Factor in Delinquency, The Heredity Factor in Prostitution, Pauperism and Vagrancy, The Inheritance of Mental Ability, Genius and Insanity, Race, The Birth Rate, Neo-Mathusianism--Birth Control, Natural Selection in Man, Selective Effect of Infant Mortality, Selective Influence of War, Sexual Selection in Man, Urban Selection and Industrial Development, The Radical Influence of Religion, Immigration and Emigration, Consanguinity, Race Mixture, Determination of Sex, Sex Ratio, Age of Parents and Offspring, Order of Birth and Offspring, Negative Eugenics. The work is unfortunately lacking an index. There are approximately 10,000 titles cited. Samuel Jackson Holmes (1868-1964) was a professor of zoology at UC Berkeley for many year, and an early California eugenicist, part of the movement that eventually sterilized thousands of Californians in the name of societal betterment. Though there are not many annotations the entries are detailed and the whole work lends to an understanding of this bizarre period in American history. Very scarce.
