Moral Culture of Infancy and Kindergarten Guide by Mrs Horace Mann and Elizabeth P Peabody, 1869

The second edition of 'Moral Culture of Infancy and Kindergarten Guide' by Mrs Horace Mann (Mary Tyler Peabody) and Elizabeth P Peabody was published by J W Schemerhorn and Co in New York in 1869. The information on this page is taken from the 1870 third edition, which, however, I believe to be identical to the second.

There are some changes to the information given in the first edition relating to paperfolding, particularly reference to the folding of 'forms of life as well as of beauty' and to mention of 'five hundred figures made out of the simple square, variously folded and cut'.
