St. Louis: The C.V. Mosby Company, 1941.

First edition. Signed by Hervey Cleckley on the front free endpaper, inscribed "For Vincent Roberts, With kind regards and all good wishes for success in his explorations of personality function along the rubro-spinal tract, in the Id and the Super-ego." [vi], 298 pp. Bound in publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering. Very Good+ with light shelf wear, a few small stains to the covers; former owner pasted the original dust jacket on the front and rear pastedowns and rear endpaper. Contents toned with scattered foxing.

Perhaps the definitive work on psychopathy (often generally referred to today as "sociopathy") from an American psychiatrist whose work influenced everything from the films Psycho and The Three Faces of Eve (co-writing the book the latter was based on) to Hare's Psychopathy Checklist. Documentary filmmaker Erroll Morris has hailed him as "one of the unsung 20th century figures." Item #140945954
