About this Item

Gesell, Arnold (1880-1961) et al. An atlas of infant behavior: A systematic delineation of the forms and early growth of human behavior patterns. 2 vols. (Vol. I: Normative series; Vol. II: Naturalistic series). 523; 525-921pp. Halftone text illustrations. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1934. 300 x 281 mm. Original loose leaves in cloth pressure bindings, gilt-lettered front covers and spines, a little worn at spines and edges. Light toning, a few edges a little frayed, but very good. First Edition. Gesell, who originated the Child Study Center at Yale University, is considered the founder of child development in the United States. The Gesell Institute of Human Development in New Haven is named for him. Gesell is best known for his groundbreaking studies of normal child development: beginning in the 1920s, he used advanced cinematic and photographic techniques, including one-way mirrors, to record developmental milestones from infancy to adolescence. His most famous work is the Atlas of Infant Behavior, which contains 3200 photographs documenting the human infant's "visible manifestations of his maturing patterns of action and reaction. . . . Through systematic, pictorial charting, we trust that this Atlas will reveal the patterned organization of the moments and of the developmental sequences of infant behavior" (p. 11).
