I love this. When I was a boy my family made frequent weekend outings to a university bookstore on an appropriately brutalist/mid-century modern campus; the shelves were filled with books (and covers) like this.


I was a bit taken aback at how many of these we have in our house (physicist + philosopher). Not necessarily the same covers though.


ya, I bet a lot of these went on to be Dover reprints…


Is there one for Induction of Psycho-Neuroses by Conditioned Reflex with Stress? I’ve only ever seen the hard-back without the dust-cover.


here’s the cover from my copy
