Very Special People - A Vintage Publication

Rare and out of print, this hard cover copy of Very Special People: The Struggles, Loves, and Triumphs of Human Oddities was published in 1973 and features a variety of photos and text on the topic.

An excerpt from the book explains: "The human oddity is natural, but nature has played a bitter prank on him. Often that prank is irremediable. The person's condition may be the result of some sudden, unexplained genetic change or the emergence of some buried trait, dictated by the laws of heredity. The thyroid, the adrenal, the pituitary or some other gland may misfire or go on a rampage. These are the Very Special People which you will learn about."
