Mr. Justice HARLAN, concurring.

On the issue of obscenity I concur in the judgment of affirmance on premises stated in my dissenting opinion in A Book Named 'John Cleland's Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure' v. Attorney General, 383 U.S. 455, 86 S.Ct. 996. In all other respects I agree with and join the Court's opinion.

Mr. Justice BLACK, dissenting.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
