Light toning to interior, light foxing to a few leaves. $500. * Third edition. This interesting book proposes that the Constitution be amended to enact what the author terms "Usonan Fundamental Law." ("Usonan" refers to "Usonia," the alternative name for the United States popularized in the early twentieth century.) As outlined here, Usonan law is primarily concerned with individual liberty and what the author describes as "practical equity." Topics discussed include the powers of the federal government, national defense, conservation, middlemen, alcohol and sex. The latter portion of the text discusses marriage and family law, with a somewhat dim view of the "parasitic tendency of the Usonan woman" and an insistence that "the artificial age limit of twenty-one" for "sexual things" must be abolished. An interesting and scarce text. OCLC locates no copies of this edition in North America.
