New York: Frederick A. Stokes, 1912.
First American edition, first printing. 377pp. Original dark navy ribbed cloth gilt stamping in a later state dust jacket (latest book title advertised on jacket was published in 1914.) Very Good, with mottling to cloth at bottom of rear spine joint and lighter so along bottom edge of covers, spine gilt is a bit faded. Light creasing to pages at prelims and terminals. The dust jacket has an inked price on the spine, browning to spine, rubbing to extremities and edge wear with chipping to the crown and fraying along the top edge. A runaway hit pedagogical text that helped birth over 100 Montessori schools within two years in the United States. Item #171009001
