(price-clipped) [a bit of wear to spine ends, browning to page edges, light dust-soiling to top edge; jacket has several tiny chips, heavy age-toning (most prominently at rear panel), and is nearly separated at the front hinge (internally tape-repaired)]. (B&W photographs) Autobiography of one of the world's first transsexuals, a former RAF flyer (who spent part of World War II in a German POW camp) and race-car driver, who in 1948 "became conscious that physically, mentally and emotionally everything was not well." He first went to a psychiatrist, later to a physician, both of whom confirmed that latent feminine characteristics, both physical and psychological, were developing in him. "Facing up to the plight of his growning feminine characteristics, he decided to use all available scientific and medal means to resolve the dilemma," and after several years of treatment and a series of operations, he emerged as Roberta Cowell, a woman.
