Of Those Alone, by Robert Hutton
A secondhand book, in very good condition. Dust jacket unclipped and in a plastic sleeve. First edition, published 1958. From the inside cover:
"The publishers feel that OF THOSE ALONE is a major contribution to the controversy over homosexuality, as well as being in itself a work of considerable interest. The Wolfenden Report brought the problem into public focus for what was probably the first time in modern history, and it was greeted both in the press and other places, often with intelligent interest, but rather more often with horrified intolerance. The reaction of the public was characterised almost entirely by ignorance both of the nature of the homosexual and of the problem which confronts him. The average individual is baffled by something which appears to him to be both unnatural and vicious, and the tendency is for society to ostracise the offender.
OF THOSE ALONE is the story of an unashamed and unrepentant homosexual. Discovering his tendencies early in life, he learnt first to accept and then to conceal them in order to avoid the censure of society..."
