As Ernest Jones said of the first edition (from the rear panel of the dustwrapper) " ... by far the most valuable study among the large literature that has accumulated over the vexed question of whether Australian aborigines are really ignorant of the physiological effects of procreation and whether they are "so to speak" pretending for social and religious reasons to be thus ignorant". This landmark study was first published in 1937, and, this second edition, takes into account later fieldwork and new information that became available on the subject. A little softening and fading of the back strip edges with rubbing of the book corners. Very light age toning of the text block edges and pages. Some sunning, quite noticeable, to the rear end pages.
