The Clitoris

This is an exceptionally rare View-master set from 1976, and arguably the most unusual.  Not for children’s eyes!  The reels contain some highly graphic imagery, but these were made for medical purposes. Written by Thomas P. Lowry, M.D. and Thea Snyder Lowry, M.A.  Both were co-directors of the Marital Therapists Training Project, California State Department of Health. Hardbound book published in 1976 with 4 View-Master reels.
