Prostitution. An investigation of its causes, especially with regard to hereditary factors

Copenhagen: Levin & Munksgaard, 1936. First edition. Quarto. Original printed wrappers; 253pp. Minor external wear; internally Fine. A socio-genetic survey of Danish prostitutes, with extensive and detailed individual case studies. Tage Kemp (1896-1964), was a eugenicist and the founding director of the International Institute of Human Genetics in Copenhaven. Though he was a firm advocate of voluntary sterilisation, the present study concludes that the "possibility of carrying out rational, effectual sterilisation on a firm scientific basis, on a certain social group such as is represented here is in reality slight." Uncommon.
