I absolutely L-O-V-E these old hygiene books! They are so much fun to look through. It makes you happy that we live in a different era where sex is concerned!
This is a hard cover book-"Safe Counsel or Practical Eugenics" by B.G. Jefferis and J.L. Nichols. This is the 38th edition with 512 pages. Right off the bat, with the first illustration-you know this book is going to be good! The caption under the picture says-Which will you choose? Happiness (Education, love,modesty, temperance, health, ambition,energy, comfort, morality, normalcy, sanity-Healthy Old Age)or Misery (ignorance, lust, obscenity, coarseness, inebreity, disease, carelessness, indolence, poverty, corruption, defective children, lunacy, senility-Misery)! Their slogan was-Fight social diseases with facts, not sentiments; study the problems of venereal infection for information, not sensation; combat social evils with science, not mystery. This is the keynote of our campaign to train men, women and children to think along the line of social hygiene.
The contents include-
Advice to Newly Married Couples (Great stuff in here:)
How to be a good husband
How to be a Good Wife
Childbearing without Pain
Care of Baby
How to Feed our Children
The 2 paths of Adolescence in the Male

Other Sex Disorders and Perversions
Quacks and Quackery
The Death Sentence
Eating Ourselves to Death
Practical Points on Personal Hygiene
Why Men Grow Old
The Story of Life-as told to his sons by Ozora S. Davis Ph.D

This is a great old book that you will love looking through! You can tell your kids that they have to conform to the Eugenics code;)
Condition- The cover has a couple of creases. There is wear and rubbing on corners and edges. Book looks pretty clean. There is some splitting between sections here and there. I see no real flaws besides the front cover. Shipping is $3.75.
