What Our Customers Say...

Description

Original Binding, Scarce

In the publisher's wraps.

A scarce pamphlet, acting as written form of a public meeting that was held in Aberdeen in 1851 to argue the favour of Unsectarian Education.

The meeting was presented by significant obstetrician, James Simpson and lawyer, George Combe. 

George Combe was a notable spokesman of the phrenological movements for over twenty years, subsequently leading to many of his works, including his most popular The Constitution of Man, being denounced as materialist and atheist. 

He sought to improve public education through a national, non-sectarian system.

The rear wrap has a list of other works on education by George Combe. 

Condition
