    "Love and Death: A Study in Censorship" (1949) by Gershon Legman is a book published by Hacker Art Books. It includes a 28-page chapter, "Not for Children," criticizing the salacious comics of the time. The chapter begins, "The American generation born since 1930 cannot read" because of the prevalence of "the radio, the talking movie, the picture-magazine and comic book....For them, the printed word is on the way out." And all this before television entered the scene! How strange to hear such familiar arguments being made so many years ago. Softcover, 95 pages, 6-in x 8.75-in. Cover price $1.75.
