Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Life and Education of Laura Dewey Bridgman: The Deaf, Dumb, and Blind Girl The author and editor of the present volume was a teacher for five years in the Perkins Institution and Massachusetts Asylum for the Blind. She was for three years the special instructor of Laura Bridgman, and had the honor of giving the first lesson to Oliver Caswell, another blind and deaf mute at the Asylum. She differed from Dr. Samuel G. Howe, the director of the Asylum, in regard to the time of commencing the religious educa tion of Laura; but she held him in high esteem as an enterprising, skilful, and persevering instuctor. He characterized her in words like the following She is a lady of great intelligence who is devotedly attached to [laura] an able and excellent teacher, who ful filled her duty with ability and conscientiousness; has been faithful and industrious and in the intellectual ih struction she has shown great tact and ability indeed to Miss Swift [now Mrs. Lamson] and Miss Wight [now Mrs. Bond] belong, far more than to any other persons the pure satisfaction of having been instrumental in the beautiful development of Laura s character. One noteworthy advantage has been enjoyed by the editor of this volume. She has retained an intimate acquaintance with Laura Bridgman for thirty seven years. Annual Reports of the Trustees of the Perkins Institution and Massachusetts Asylum for the Blind, XI, p. 37 XIII, pp. 23, 24 XIV, p. 30, etc., etc. These documents will be hereafter alluded to simply as Annual Reports. The blind deaf -mute was only in the thirteenth year of her age, and in the third year of her residence at the Asylum, when she was put under the particular and almost exclusive charge of Mrs. Lamson, and from that day to this has been accustomed to communicate her thoughts freely to the teacher who instructed her in 1840. The editor of the volume has thus been able to compare the later with the earlier development of Laura. Laura herself is liable to forget those earlier develop ments, to mistake her more recently acquired knowledge for that which she had acquired at a remoter period. The ideas, however, which she expressed in the initial stages of her education were recorded day by day, and the testimony of a written journal is far more trustworthy than that of the memory.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: . Asked her why she did not read now in her book. I never read now, I do not know what the words mean. Proposed her reading to me, but she asked that she might tell me about an elephant. Told her a story of little boy who troubled one, and how he retaliated. I chanced to say he thought. She did not interrupt the story, but at its close said, Can elephants think? Dec. 21, 1842. Laura announced her birthday. I am thirteen now: am I taller? A very good gymnasium had been fitted up for the use of the blind pupils, and it was thought best for Laura to join the girls at their hour. She was not much pleased with it. As she could not hear the orders and make the movements in concert as those only blind could, it was not strange that some of the charm of it was lost on her. She visited a museum yesterday, and I asked her to tell me what she saw. I saw crocodile and elephant s bone of head; why was his eye very large? I saw elephant s trunk and camel s legs; they were very high. I could not reach his head, and I stood on stool, and could not reach. Why cannot he put his head to the ground? I saw bear; what does he do? After thinking awhile she said, Why did God make proboscis, and why does the elephant not have teeth and lips like us? She wanted to have me tell her about the cages in which bears were kept. After paying close attention, she said, I will get something to show you if it is like. She went to the apparatus case, and took the little carriage from the inclined plane, to illustrate her idea of a cage on wheels. To give her a more correct one I took the wire frame used with the air pump, and put that on wheels. She understood it at once, but asked, Why do not bears have cages made of wood? They could not have air enough to. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230439204

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Life and Education of Laura Dewey Bridgman: The Deaf, Dumb, and Blind Girl The author and editor of the present volume was a teacher for five years in the Perkins Institution and Massachusetts Asylum for the Blind. She was for three years the special instructor of Laura Bridgman, and had the honor of giving the first lesson to Oliver Caswell, another blind and deaf mute at the Asylum. She differed from Dr. Samuel G. Howe, the director of the Asylum, in regard to the time of commencing the religious educa tion of Laura; but she held him in high esteem as an enterprising, skilful, and persevering instuctor. He characterized her in words like the following She is a lady of great intelligence who is devotedly attached to [laura] an able and excellent teacher, who ful filled her duty with ability and conscientiousness; has been faithful and industrious and in the intellectual ih struction she has shown great tact and ability indeed to Miss Swift [now Mrs. Lamson] and Miss Wight [now Mrs. Bond] belong, far more than to any other persons the pure satisfaction of having been instrumental in the beautiful development of Laura s character. One noteworthy advantage has been enjoyed by the editor of this volume. She has retained an intimate acquaintance with Laura Bridgman for thirty seven years. Annual Reports of the Trustees of the Perkins Institution and Massachusetts Asylum for the Blind, XI, p. 37 XIII, pp. 23, 24 XIV, p. 30, etc., etc. These documents will be hereafter alluded to simply as Annual Reports. The blind deaf -mute was only in the thirteenth year of her age, and in the third year of her residence at the Asylum, when she was put under the particular and almost exclusive charge of Mrs. Lamson, and from that day to this has been accustomed to communicate her thoughts freely to the teacher who instructed her in 1840. The editor of the volume has thus been able to compare the later with the earlier development of Laura. Laura herself is liable to forget those earlier develop ments, to mistake her more recently acquired knowledge for that which she had acquired at a remoter period. The ideas, however, which she expressed in the initial stages of her education were recorded day by day, and the testimony of a written journal is far more trustworthy than that of the memory.

Item Description: Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: . Asked her why she did not read now in her book. I never read now, I do not know what the words mean. Proposed her reading to me, but she asked that she might tell me about an elephant. Told her a story of little boy who troubled one, and how he retaliated. I chanced to say he thought. She did not interrupt the story, but at its close said, Can elephants think? Dec. 21, 1842. Laura announced her birthday. I am thirteen now: am I taller? A very good gymnasium had been fitted up for the use of the blind pupils, and it was thought best for Laura to join the girls at their hour. She was not much pleased with it. As she could not hear the orders and make the movements in concert as those only blind could, it was not strange that some of the charm of it was lost on her. She visited a museum yesterday, and I asked her to tell me what she saw. I saw crocodile and elephant s bone of head; why was his eye very large? I saw elephant s trunk and camel s legs; they were very high. I could not reach his head, and I stood on stool, and could not reach. Why cannot he put his head to the ground? I saw bear; what does he do? After thinking awhile she said, Why did God make proboscis, and why does the elephant not have teeth and lips like us? She wanted to have me tell her about the cages in which bears were kept. After paying close attention, she said, I will get something to show you if it is like. She went to the apparatus case, and took the little carriage from the inclined plane, to illustrate her idea of a cage on wheels. To give her a more correct one I took the wire frame used with the air pump, and put that on wheels. She understood it at once, but asked, Why do not bears have cages made of wood? They could not have air enough to. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230439204
