O'Dea, James J.  Suicide; studies on its philosophy, causes, and prevention. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1882. Small 8vo (20 cm, 7.75"). ix, [1], 322 pp.
$100.00

Sole edition (except for digital reprints) of O'Dea's well-reasoned and compelling study of self-murder and it begins by stating that "Suicide is a question partly social, partly medical" and in doing so places himself squarely in the emerging 19th-century camp of thinkers who disavowed suicides as all being insane. By recognizing the social forces behind some suicides, he is a forward thinker.
        Provenance: From the library of Robert Sadoff, M.D., sans indicia.

Publisher's green cloth, a bit worn. Title-leaf with upper outer corner torn away costing the "E" in "Suicide" and the "tion" of "prevention." A copy that was read more than once and has been handled a bit. A good copy.  (39567)   Please RESHELVE This.
