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, , 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.
