The Decline of the American Male Illustrated by Robert Osborn

New York: Random House, 1958. Hardcover. 66p., Osborn's sketches throughout are printed over tint-blocks, hardbound first edition 9x6.5 inch decorated boards in color dust jacket. Casing is slightly greyed around top and tail margins, dj glaze has lifted up from paperstock along the front joint and that narrow area has collected dust (as have margins printer omitted to glaze) but an otherwise very good clean sound copy. Text is less grossly sexist than Osborn's imagery.

William Attwood was a sometime diplomat and his contribution is marked by familiarity with French culture; he targets the US "rat-race" milieu more than US women. FYI, he was backchannels go-between to Castro from JFK at the time of the assassination.
