About this title


This is the third set in the series, following on from "Female Education Considered: Nineteenth-Century Britain" and "Governess Education". It consists of six volumes that give moral and practical advice to mothers on educating their children at home. The set should constitute a valuable resource for students and scholars of 19th-century studies and the history of education. The volumes in this set range in date from as early as 1802 (Elizabeth Hamilton) up until 1878 (Elizabeth Blackwell). The type of educational advice given is also wide-ranging, and covers the whole spectrum of childhood from infancy through to the late teens. Volume 3, for example, covers the early years with Louisa Hoare's "Hints for the Improvement of Early Education and Nursery Discipline" (1819) and the charmingly illustrated "Woman's Educational Mission: Being an Explanation of Frederick Frobel's System of Infant Gardens" (1855). Harriet Martineau English social reformer and author, poet and philosopher sets out in "Household Education" (1849) her views on the moral and intellectual education of children by their mothers. In "Maternal Counsels to a Daughter" (1855), Matilda Pullan puts herself in the place of a mother guiding her young daughter through the perils and perplexities of life, giving advice to "aid her in the care of her health, the improvement of her mind, and the cultivation of her heart".
