A Handbook on Good Manners for Children.
This first treatise in Western Europe on the education of children was the best-selling book in the 16th century. Newly translated by Eleanor Merchant, linguist, Latin teacher, and mother of three hooligans of her own, the book was first translated from Latin to English in 1532. Covers how to dress, how to behave at table, how to bow, converse with elders, good posture, and some advice on how to play. Still relevant today. Includes a few pages of facsimile from Erasmus's Latin pub. Hardbound in blue cloth with gilt title. Illustrations and decorations. Preface Publishing, London, 2008. Import. NEW. $15.00
