Very attractive copy with only very light wear. Spine is neither cracked nor creased. Book appears to be unread. Black Shrink is an as-told-to account of the special factors involved in being a black psychologist. Leo Guild was something of a staff writer for Holloway House; he has been called "the greatest hack ever." Holloway House first editions are notoriously tricky to identify. Most titles were republished many times. In titles from the 60's and 70's, the statement "First Printing" can occur in later printings as well as the first. True first printings are rather scarce and condition is often an issue. Holloway House began in the 1960's. It was the first publisher to capitalize on the urban black market. Besides Donald Goines, Holloway House published Iceberg Slim, Joseph Nazel, Robert DeCoy and many other African-American writers. Wanda Coleman, now called the "Poet Laureate of Los Angeles," was an early editor. The company is still in operation.; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 218 +ads pages
