London: Printed for A. and J. Churchill,. 1699. - Yolton 168, notes that ÒThe work is largely a reprint of the third, but with new errors, especially of spelling, introduced. There are a few substantial changes: Section 7 is expanded by one page, S 94 by half a page, and SSÕs 192-3 are slightly rephrased. The only large addition occurs in S 167, the section headed ÔLatinÕ, where more details about the skills of a tutor or teacher needed to encourage and instruct his pupil are describedÓ (Attig 525). Octavo. [viii], 380, [2, Contents] pp. Eighteenth-century calf, rebacked, corners repaired. A good crisp copy. Fourth edition. "Locke's popular Thoughts concerning Education, containing the seeds of modern developmental psychology, began as series of letters to his friend Edward Clarke concerning the upbringing of Clarke's children (Locke himself was childless). Locke anticipated Rousseau in his advocacy of the "natural child" who was to be toughened by exposure to the elements and fed only when hungry. He also interested himself in the moral education of children, stressing the importance of restraint and reason in molding the child's mind" (Norman 1381). Wing L 2764.
