Erster Schreib und Lese Unterricht nach der Graser'schen Unterrichts-Methode
Lithographed title & 8 lithographed plates. 8 pp. of letterpress text & 8 pp. of lithographed text. Small oblong 8vo, orig. blue silk cloth, covers with gilt border & central device in gilt. Munich: 1812. First edition of this extremely early lithographic work; it is very rare with WorldCat locating only two copies (BL and BSB). The invention of lithography about 1800 was particularly suitable for the creation of handwriting and penmanship manuals, having many advantages over printed and engraved books. The eight lithographed pages of text reproduce handwriting and the eight plates - again, all lithographed - depicts a series of letter forms. Graser (1766-1841), was a prominent Bavarian educator and reformer of teaching methods; his influence and ideas extended to Russia, Britain, and the United States. He made contributions to new methods of reading and handwriting and also was involved in developing new techniques for the instruction of deaf-mutes. Fine copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. ? Twyman, Early Lithographed Books, pp. 18-43. Graser: A.D.B., Vol. 9, pp. 584-85.
