With a name the same as mine, and me possibly being a direct descendant of Dr. Charles Knowlton, I'm naturally very interested in this book. The author had done an excellent job of researching and writing this book. He was also very kind in sending me two autographed copies, one for me, and one for my son. I have not yet (that I can recall) discovered any typos in this book. Dr. Charles Knowlton was an amazing man. He wrote America's first book on birth control, and was jailed for that, twice and they tried again a third time but was acquitted on a hung jury. As a medical student, Dr. Knowlton was a body snatcher to get bodies for medical studies. He was also very anti-religion, which raised the anger of the clergy and general polulace, and also contributed to getting him into jail. And thus the title for this book.
