Description: 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, New York, February 21, 1975. In this letter, Spock reflects on the purpose of his writing "Baby and Child Care," in part: "The main impact of my books, I believe, has been to give parents more trust in themselves, and also trust that their children will try, themselves, to become more mature and responsible. Child rearing, in middle class families in America, had become child centered long before BABY AND CHILD CARE came out in 1946..." Horizontal folds; small faint crease in the upper right corner. Very good condition.

Comments: American pediatrician and author whose book "Baby and Child Care," published in 1946, revolutionized concepts in child rearing and parenting for decades to come.

I recently purchased a book from you, having searched via the internet. The book came yesterday and this note commends your service and quick response. I was impressed with the care taken to wrap the book with tissue paper and several layers of corrugated cardboard, as well as the speed with which you must have sent it out. It arrived only a week after the order, in spite of the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank you for the attention paid to the quality of my order and hope we will do more business. - Steve C.
