Books on Children (ES 5-vol. set)
This is the third part of Edition Synapse’s series of collections of early English writings on children. It consists of facsimile reprints of rare educational and religious books and pamphlets, including conduct books and advice for parents in the early Modern period. A total of fourteen items are reproduced in this part, which includes writings by Benjamin Bourn, Thomas Lancaster, Thomas Beddoes, and others. For those seeking to trace the development of British views on children during the period from the late sixteenth century to the turn of the eighteenth century, it is an invaluable resource.
