Adopt a New Acquisition


How to Raise a Child in 1685


Traité de la civilité... Lyon, 1685

Adopt for: $585



Traité de la civilité nouvellement dressé d’une manière exacte & méthodique & suivant les regles de l’usage vivant. Lyon: Chez Jean Certe, 1685.

This is a French-Catholic book about child care. The chapters cover hygiene, clothing, prayer and holy matters, study, and recreation, as well as food, conversation, and letter-writing. There is an annotation on one of the end blanks reading "Robert Murray with my h[and] in Berlin the 14 of Jannuari 1706." This volume is a nice addition to the Folger's large collection of courtesy books.
