"The Rapid Multiplication of the Unfit" was published by Victoria Woodhull in 1891 London. This is a clean and easily read facsimile of that 39-page booklet and describes her fear that 'unfit' people were having more children than the 'fit.' It is Chapter 7 in the book, Lady Eugenist: Feminist Eugenics in the Speeches and Writings of Victoria Woodhull. Many readers may prefer to get that printed edition or to have it purchased by their public or school library, so other can use it. (Lady Eugenist is also available as a ebook.) The ebook also includes two additional chapters from Lady Eugenist: the introduction, Chapter 1, "Was Victoria Woodhull the First Eugenist?" and Chapter 3, "Press Notices," which are eugenic-related selections from newspapers articles about Victoria Woodhull taken from her 1890 book, The Human Body The Temple of God. The entire ebook is 86 pages long, and there are no digital rights management restrictions on the reader's ability to print or more
