Quarter Century Edition of the Paradise of Childhood. A Practical Guide to Kindergartners
Second printing of the "Quarter Century Edition" issued by Milton Bradley in 1896, after their first American edition in 1869. This edition expanded to include a biography of Froebel and his legacy in education. Near Fine with minor soil and sunning to boards, gilt cover remains bright and crisp. Thoroughly illustrated in black and white, including photographic plates and copious diagrams for practicing each of the Froebel Gifts--playing with blocks, patterns for pricking, sewing and weaving, etc. A less common printing which filled the demand for Kindergarten books at the turn of the century until Bradley published the "Golden Jubilee" edition shortly thereafter.
