First Edition, half-title, engraved frontispiece, 21 engraved plates by Azélie Hubert after Julie Ribault, occasional pieces missing from the outer blank margins where leaves were roughly opened, some minor foxing and staining otherwise a good copy, [9], 10-224 pp., recent quarter calf, marbled boards, gilt lettering on spine. "Guillié established the first ophthalmological clinic in France and became director of the Institution Royale des Jeunes Aveugles in Paris. The Institution, founded by Haüy (181) in 1785, was the first such school for the blind in the world. The author chronicles the philanthropic deeds directed toward the blind up to that time and describes the first attempts at special graphic methods for the use of the blind. Of particular interest is the account of his methods of instructing the blind in various crafts. The plates show blind craftsmen engaged in a variety of skilled occupations. Guillié endeavored to understand and encourage the communication which he observed between blind and deaf-mute children at the time when the two institutions were united." - Becker, (pp.170-177).
