First Polish edition. 14 pp. Self wrappers. Polish edition of the work originally published in 1914. Hoolihan 3090. From Hoolihan 3084, describing the first edition: Family limitation defends a woman's right to control her body, defends her right to have an abortion if she does not choose to be pregnant, and gives simple, explicit directions for a variety of ways to prevent conception. After forty years of 'Com-stockery' -- decades during which obscenity laws in the United States prohibited the provision of information on sex education or contraception through the mails -- the publication of Family limitation was a remarkable act of civil disobedience and the opening volley of the birth control movement in 20th century America... Appearing on the eve of World War I and during a period of significant labor trouble -- a time when the authorities hoped to suppress any form of dissent -- Family limitation also urged 'women of the working class' not to provide cannon fodder for the wars of 'financiers and the ruling classes'.
