Originally published in 1921 as part of the Contributions to the History of Education series, this book by respected educationalist John Adamson chronicles the changing forms of education in the 17th and 18th centuries in England as well as in the schools of St. Jean-Baptiste de la Salle in France and August Francke in Germany. In addition to more famous educators like Comenius, Adamson also gives lesser-known innovators their place, such as Samuel Hartlib and Dr Cyprian Kinner. This volume will be useful to anyone with an interest in the development of education in western Europe during this period, or in the history of education more generally.
