Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (Inscribed first edition)
Philadelphia and London: W. B. Saunders Company, 1948. First Edition. Inscribed by Kinsey: "To Otis Wade Alfred Kinsey 7.3.50." Additionally signed by Wardell B. Pomeroy and Paul H. Gebhard (Gebhard was a close colleague of Kinsey's, co-authoring Sexual Behavior in the Human Female). Otis Wade was a photographer and film hobbyist, making early erotic films, which he later donated to Kinsey's Institute for Sex Research. A Near Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. The lower corners of the book are a little dinged, otherwise a nice bright copy. Dust jacket with slight fading to the spine and a few little chips or tears to the extremities, but Near Fine overall. An extremely desirable copy with the multiple author signatures and the association with Wade. As controversial as it was influential, Kinsey's first major work was groundbreaking for its use of empirical data as a means for understanding human sexuality. Drawing on years of research and over 5,000 individual interviews, the study helped to place sexual behavior and identity on a spectrum rather than as part of a simple binary system. "Males do not represent two discrete populations; heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats, and not all things are black and white...the living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning human sexual behavior, the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex." Adapted into a film in 2004 starring an ensemble cast that included Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Chris O'Donnell, Peter Sarsgaard, John Lithgow, and Oliver Plath. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
