The jacket is rubbed at edges and has a few closed tears, including one on the spine. Not price clipped. Yellow top stain. Untrimmed edges. Very clean, tight copy; scarce. "'The Rate of Living' is of immense interest to both the biologist and the general reader, not only as the account of an important series of experiments, but by reason of the wider conclusions which are to be drawn from them." "Raymond Pearl is one of the most famous of American scientists. He is best known as a specialist in heredity and biometry, and his writings on the future of humanity based on his biological experiments contain conclusions which are accepted the world over as among the most significant that have been drawn...".
