About this Item

12mo, pp. xx, 306, [ii]. Bound in contemporary calf (chipped and worn, front cover and fly leaf separate, one signature pulled, some foxing and stain. frontispiece by S[amuel] Hill, Boston. Windle B3f; Evans 29464; ESTC: 11 locations, OCLC locates 17 copies. The Elements of morality was translated by Mary Wollstonecraft from Salzmann'sMoralisches Elementarbuch, published originally in 1782. The book was devised for the instruction of children, and bore similarities to Mary Wollstonecraft's Original stories; in the preface she explains that she started the translation merely as an exercise in German, only to discover that "chance had thrown in my way a very rational book, and that the writercoincided with me in opinion respecting the method which ought to be pursued to form the heart and temper, or, in other words, to inculcate the first principles of morality. All the pictures were drawn from real life, and that I highly approve of this method, my having written a book on the same plan is the strongest proof.". Bookseller Inventory # 48177
