Vol. II on handmade paper (Büttenpapier). First edition. The first work on the education of the deaf and dumb to attract international attention. It was published as a help for teaching the deaf mutes, with detailed exposition of the system both in the text and on the numerous figures or scenes on the fine plates. Czech regarded thinking as a mental activity being innate in each individual. Articulated speech may make the process easier but is not intrinsically necessary. He therefore thought it both morally and legally a duty to provide education to the deaf and dumb. Czech had been professor of philosophy at the Theresianischen Ritter-Akademie in Vienna and in 1818 was appointed professor at the famous Wiener Taubstummen Institut. This institute had been founded in 1779 by Maria Theresia after the example of the French Institution Nationale des Sourds Muets of the famous Abbe de l'Epee. +++ Covers well preserved, for overall outside condition and details see photo # 2. Vol. I: some foxing on FEPs and index pp., else spotless and bright. Vol. II: faded small stamps on front and end paper. Paper edges foxed. About 10 out of 72 etched tables show scarce and inconspicuous foxing. The rest is bright and clean. +++ Extremely rare. This first ed. being available only in two libraries world wide (Berlin [same pagination as in our item], and Cincinatti [without the plates]). +++ COLLECTOR'S ITEM. +++ From non-smoking household. +++ Weitere Infos gerne über die Schaltfläche "Dem Anbieter eine Frage stellen".
