Goedeke IV, I, 611, 6; cf. PMM 258. First edition of the collected works of the greatest reformer of education since Comenius, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi (1746-1827), a Swiss by birth. His basic principle was that children should be educated, not trained like dogs. So the pupil came first, not the subject, and the "whole person" must be educated. The famous Humboldt introduced Pestalozzi's educational system into Germany and the next milestone in the history of education, Fröbel, started from Pestalozzi's views. Fröbel, the next great reformer, spent the years 1808 to 1810 tutoring three boys at Pestalozzi's Institute at Yverdun. The first volume contains a list of subscribers of about 50 pages, headed by the Czar of Russia, the Kings of Prussia, Bavaria and the Netherlands, and by the Queens of Würtemberg and Sweden. Apart from the title-pages of the collected edition, most works have also their own title-pages and all earlier prefaces are included as well.Very good uniform set, slightly foxed, especially the first volume, with some occasional stains. First volume recased, with new endpapers.
