L'Education raisonnable et chrétienne des enfans, woodcut vignette representing a child playing the harp on title, ornaments, foxing throughout, some browning, Jesuit library stamp, contemporary paper boards, soiled, 8vo, Emanuel Tourneisen, Basel, 1777.
*** Only one copy recorded at the University Library of Lausanne. Rare pedagogical text, which follows the life of infants from birth through breastfeeding, diseases, and parental responsibilities, to the various stages of growth, up to early adolescence, and the stages of education (school, reading and writing, study of the most important disciplines, such as Latin, music, history and geography), and Christian (catechism). The work seems to be affected by an enlightenment spirit and recalls Rousseau's philosophy.
