Traité du Choix et de la Méthode des Etudes [Considered the first general work on the history of education]

Paris: Chez Abouin, Emery & Clousier, 1687. Hardcover. Early edition. 12mo, original calf, very good with handsome gilt spine; minor rubbing, contents very clean. 365 pp. A Catholic theologian and historian, he earned the respect of both Louis XIV and his court and of French Enlightenment figures. Voltaire thought this treatise on education one of the best works on the subject. The Traité du Choix et de la Méthode des Etudes, made interesting and significant proposals for a radical reform of education in seventeenth-century France. It also included a survey of educational history that Monroe and Kandel considered as, very likely, the first general work on the history of education (in Cyclopedia of Education, 1913). Also appended in the author's Discourse on Plato. Very Good. Item #H15862
