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.

You've got yourself one happy customer at this end, folks. I've been looking for another copy of "West of the Indus" for nearly twenty years (I know, it's such a cultural wasteland out here in the provinces), and I never expected to find one with a dust jacket. I am amazed. Thank you so much. I've enjoyed many books over the years, but this one has always been one of my favorites. Now if I can just figure out how to share it with my friends without losing it... - Paul B.
