About This Item
New York: White, Gallaher, & White, 1829. Second edition, revised and corrected. Tall 8vo, bound in full contemporary calf, the spine with double-ruled gilt lines separating the compartments and a single red morocco label gilt lettered and trimmed in gilt. xi, 424, xliv pp. Lacking front blanks and one leaf [iii,iv] of the Appendix. A well preserved copy of a scarce early American history, the binding with some age evidence and light rubbing, but still strong, the textblock with some very minor occasional spotting, some mild toning or mellowing all as is typical of American books of the period. A SCARCE EARLY AMERICAN HISTORY BY A PIONEER OF WOMEN'S EDUCATION. Emma Willard founded the first school for women's higher education in America--the Troy Female Seminary in Troy, New York which was renamed the Emma Willard School in 1895 and is still operating as an independent university-preparatory day and boarding school for young women. With the success of her school, and with income from the textbooks she authored, Willard was able to travel across the country promoting education for women. She specifically promoted the teaching of subjects that had long been excluded in women's education: mathematics, philosophy, geography, history, and science. Willard's history and geography texts included women as well as men and emphasized the status of women as the primary determinant in whether a society could be described as civilized.
