Title: THE INTRODUCTORY DISCOURSE AND THE LECTURES ...
Publisher: Carter, Hendee and Co.
Book Condition: Good
Book Description Boston: Clarke, Hendee, 1833. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 8vo, original publisher's cloth, effaced printed paper spine label, xvi, 186pp. Mild foxing. Small library stamp on first contents leaf. On pp. 127-63 appears Bronson Alcott's "ON THE NATURE AND MEANS OF EARLY EDUCATION, AS DEDUCED FROM EXPERIENCE," incorrectly cited and detailed at BAL 102. It comprises his second published work, at least according to Blanck, whose own entry was drawn from the copy at AAS. Benjamin Franklin Foster's PRIZE ESSAY ON THE BEST METHOD OF TEACHING PENMANSHIP is on pp. 109-126 here, but that title's citation in Nash, AMERICAN PENMANSHIP 1800 - 1850 alludes only to an 1834 publication of 60pp., issued separately. How it is that two rather famous, notable, and usually reliable bibliographers missed out in the existence of this book remains puzzling. Bookseller Inventory # C182/102
