The Introduction reads, ÒThe want of success in the education of youth, so that many of them become, in the end, vicious, or at best, useless characters, is a subject of frequent remark, and of deep regret. How often are the fondest hopes and tenderest affections of parents frustrated by those very children on whom they had doted as the promoters of their greatest earthly comforts, and as the props of their declining years.Ó Lacking the front flyleaf. Scattered foxing, text remains bright. Pencil markings of previous owner on rear endpapers. 12mo. 190pp. Hardcover.
