Inscribed by the philosopher Harry Stopes-Roe (son of Marie Stopes) to his wife ‘Another Tuesday present To combine her old and new interests/ To encourage her to think about great thoughts and great problems with love From Harry Stopes Roe. 4.5.76.’

Brown cloth, a near fine copy in a good jacket, a little collection of ephemera relating to Galton publications laid in.

The chapter on ‘Hereditary genius’ may have chimed for both husband and wife: he was the son of the birth control campaigner Marie Stopes; she was the daughter of the inventor of the bouncing bomb: Barnes Wallis. This pamphlet comes from the collection of Harry Stopes Roe (1924-1914) and his wife Mary which was sold following the death of Mary Stopes Roe in May last year.
