Kindergarten and Primary School for the Blind. An Earnest Appeal for its Foundation and Endowment.

Boston, Massachusetts: Wright & Potter Printing Company, 1883. An important early publication in the history of education, including the oft-reproduced portrait of Friedrich Froebel (1782-1852), here engraved by Littell of New York. Aiming to align the general public with Froebel's cause, the preface ends with an entreaty: "Fellow-citizens, will you not aid us to assist the blind to help themselves?" (p. 4).

8vo (9.25" by 5.75"), pp. 14, unbound (possibly as issued?), contemporary crude sewing to left-hand margin, misbound so that the title-page is on the verso of the first leaf and not the recto. Good. Water staining, light toning and dust soiling, minor short tears to foot. Sewing beginning to loosen.
