The Case Against the Little White Slaver Volume 1
Detroit: Henry Ford. 1914. Ford provides the foreword to this pamphlet published by him; it is addressed, "To My Friend, the American Boy," and begins with a story of being in discussion with Thomas Edison and John Burroughs about the evils of smoking cigarettes. Burroughs' name doesn't reappear, but Edison's portrait provides a frontispiece, along with a reproduction of a brief letter by him explaining the science behind the harm cigarettes cause. There follows a two-page rebuttal, so to speak, by the President of the American Tobacco Company, followed by a dozen pages of counterpoint apparently compiled by Ford's secretary and covering the effects of cigarettes on the brain, the heart, athleticism, efficiency, morality, and the soul, among other things. 22 pages, stapled pictorial wrappers. Small ink stamp on flyleaf, and what looks like a partial erasure of same on the front cover. Near fine. Over the next two years, Ford published three more volumes of this Case, but the original, Volume 1, is extremely scarce: OCLC locates only one copy. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine.
