The Common Sense Book Of Baby And Child Care

This is a reprint of the One and Only Original book by Dr. Benjamin Spock on Baby and Child Care. Prior to this reprint, the original book had not been reprinted since 1957. Instead there have been many new books, all bearing Dr. Spock's name, but these have been considerably different books and usually much shorter. No book published after 1957 has been a true reprint of the original book. Starting with Baby and Child Care (2nd ed.). New York: Pocket Books (1957), books have been coming out claiming to be new editions of the original book, but in reality they are different books, not the same book. Poor Dr. Spock has had to cater to the demands of various pressure groups who demanded revisions of his work.

The product I ordered was the original edition of Dr. Benjamin Spock's 1946 "Common Sense book of baby and child care." The product I received is the much less exciting 1976 revised edition of the book. I am HUGELY disappointed. I specifically need the 1946 copy and was thrilled to find out that it was available for such a reasonable price. Original copies are not easy to come by, and as a historian, edition dates matter. I won't return this book because it's too much of a hassle, but I would never have purposely bought this edition. FALSE advertising. You should make sure your products match what is advertising them as. THUMBS DOWN!
