NotesFirst edition. Alfred Binet (1857-1911) was a highly influential figure in French psychiatry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, now best remembered as being the inventor, with Théodore Simon, of the first practical IQ test. La suggestibilité is an analysis of suggestibility, based on Binet's studies on schoolchildren, where he was able to induce memory errors through presenting the children with simple objects and using suggestive questioning.
Octavo. Original green wrappers printed in black.
A few pencilled annotations. Spine reinforced with brown tape, wrappers lightly soiled, some foxing and toning to contents. Still a very good copy.
