What and How: A Systemized Course of Hand Work for Primary Grades, for Rural Schools, for the Home
Green cloth 8vo, 159pp. Second edition. Very Good with light sunning and discoloration to exterior, binding slightly shaken. Printed on heavy, semigloss stock with an abundance of great illustrations, many in color, of Froebel Gifts including sewing, weaving, and stick laying, plus geometric shapes and patterns. What and How—an excellent title and one of the best, most condensed and immediate visual evidence of the kindergarten legacy in modern art. Written by Anna Henderson and H. O. Palen, intended to bridge the gap between home and school learning—“and to help the teacher arouse and hold his interest through « things » while he is learning to read books.” (preface) An unassuming little volume with really wonderful graphics. Increasingly scarce, but always an absolute pleasure to find!
