A very presentable first printing of this rare naturist treatise. Eden Regained is "a record of actual accomplishments of a minority group in demonstrating to the world, the inherent dignity of the nude human form and the fallacy of the assumption that nudity and modesty have nothing in common. It is written as the personal experience of a man, who after a lifetime of social nudism relates facts to prove the salutory effect of social nudism upon the society of our day. Herbert Webbs tells, with the consummate skill of the master craftsman, how he became a nudist and why he remained one all his life" (front flap). Good + / good. Item #4947
