Some pencilled notes and previous owner's name inked to front free endpaper. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. "This chronological list of books banned from 387 B.C. to 1954 shows the trend of censorship throughout the years and the change in thought and taste. The cases cited demonstrate that any guess as to the danger of particular books looks silly and vapid in the next decades, especially as the emphasis shifted from heresy to sedition and now to obscenity. Based on the 1935 edition, it is a major contribution to the cause of Freedom for Books. A great deal of interesting and wryly surprising material is included."
