First edition (later republished by A. S. Barnes). Green cloth 16mo, 107pp +(iii) ads. Very Good + with mild rubbing, closed tear to front flyleaf. Gift inscription to first blank, else unmarked. Introduction by Thomas Hunter, president of the New York City Normal College: "It is one of the peculiarities of our educational system, that a very large number of teachers undertake the duties of the school-room each year without any special preparation... It may disappoint those readers who expect to find in it a "patent " plan to reduce a bold and wayward youth to instantaneous submission. No small number of difficulties have arisen from the attempt by the teacher to sway his scepter with too little regard for the fact, that the school in this republican country is a republic. The only way to manage a self-governing people is to render the citizens manageable; and this is especially true of a school."
