What of the Blind? A Survey of the Development and Scope of Present-Day Work with the Blind: Volume 2by Helga Lende
This book is intended as a companion volume to What of the Blind? Recently published by the American Foundation for the Blind. The first volume was brought out in answer to a long-felt need for a convenient reference work to put in the hands of professional workers, board members and lay persons desiring general information on work with the blind. The subjects treated were mainly of a general nature as will be seen from the table of contents appended to this book.
