Item #011335 OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND. Frank Wright Jr., eon.


Philadelphia: National Mental Health Foundation, 1947. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Watershed treatise, with pictures, that was a breakthrough for public advocacy for reforms of treatment of and conditions for the care of the mentally ill. Subtitled on title page: "A graphic picture of present-day institutional care of the mentally ill in America, based on more than two-thousand eye-witness reports" The book largely reflects the observations and vision of Harold E. L.Barton (1916-2005), a tireless advocate for the mentally ill. Softcover, as issued, pictorial covers, 164 pages, with b& w photos. Scarce in first edition, this the even rare pre-publication review edition, for limited distribution, June 1947. Not that uncommon in special collections, but rarely seen outside of them. Very Good.
