NATURE STUDY AND LIFE by Hodge, Clifton F.


Edition: First edition.

Boston: Ginn & Co., 1902. Hardcover first edition - A book which emphasizes the importance of teaching nature studies to children; includes both methods for teaching and content - surprisingly up to date: includes statements like "copying names is a waste of time," suggestions for intergrating language and writing skills, and from the first chapter, this comment on the environment, now, unfortunately, truer than ever - "extermination of animal species is now going on, and at a rate never before equaled." Illustrated with many photographs.

Condition: Overall very good condition in original sturdy blue-gray cloth binding with gold lettering, black design, on front cover and spine. A few penciled notations in text, the endpapers are covered with notes, most in pencil, but a few in ink. Clipping pasted to inside of front endpaper.
