WIEBE, EDWARD. - The Paradise of Childhood: A manual for self instruction in Friedrich Froebel's educational principles, and a practical Guide to Kinder-Gartners. Revised edition, containing the text of 'A Handbook for the Kindergarten.'
London, Swan Sonnenshein 1889. Quarto publisher's cloth; 84,,5-16pp and 76 litho plates numbered to 74 with two bis. Front fly a bit fragile and the paper a bit brown; used but very decent. ¶ First published in the US in 1869, this was the essential manual for followers of Froebel's principles for the next few decades. This English edition seems a faithful reprint (if not the same sheets) as the Springfield revised edition of late 1887 or early 1888. The plates are mostly patterns for activities, arts and crafts - shapes, drawing, weaving, sewing, etc - in series of increasing complexity.AUD 80.00 [Appr.: EURO 57 US$ 61.36 | £UK 49.25 | JP¥ 6838] Book number 8222
