New York: E. Steiger, 1872. First Edition. Hardcover. 4 7/8 X 7 1/8 Inches. 101 PP. Very Good. Item #4968

Original printed paper boards with leather spine. Douai was a noted abolitionist newsaper editor and early advocate for the installation of nationwide Kindergarten classrooms. As an early supporter of the "Workingmen's Party of the United States", he was one of the most prominent Marxists in America during the late 19th Century. His books helped shape the future of American education and his lessons for a wider educated "class" extended well beyond the classroom.

"It has often been proclaimed as the pride and prerogative of America, that here a higher humanity is in the course of inauguration. If that claim is to be maintained, its realization must first appear in matters of Education." (Page 101)

Spine a bit scuffed and rubbed. Toning and slight wear to corners and edges. An attractive copy of an elusive book.

Price: $150.00
