Collingwood, Herbert W.  
Adventures in Silence
Publisher: The Rural New Yorker, 1923 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "There are about 75, 000 people in this country who were never able to hear. There are also about half a million who have lost all or part of their hearing, and more than one million in addition who must use some contrivance to aid their ears. This army, nearly as large as the one sent overseas, is forced to live a strange and mysterious life, which most normal persons know nothing about, even though they come into daily contact with the outposts. The ordinary deaf man is usually regarded as a joke or a nuisance, according to the humor of his associates. This social condition is largely due to the fact that he has found no place in literature; he occupies an abnormal position because his story has never been fairly told.. I have long felt that we are sadly handicapped socially through the failure to put our life and our strange adventures into literature - the deaf person must remain a joke or a tragedy until he has made the world see something of the finer side of his life in the silence. This is why I have attempted to record these 'adventures'.." 285 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
