First Edition. Publisher's half vellum with decorative gold string over textured handmade paper. An album produced in a small limited edition, targeting American supporters for the purpose of raising funds for the then-new school. Though today the school is one of the most elite in all of Europe, and with several locations, it had virtually no funding at the time of this volume's publication.Kurt Hahn and Karl Reinhardt founded the Schule Schloss Salem (or Salem School) in 1920 with the support of Prince Maximilian of Baden, introducing an "education reform" which encouraged progressive methods, developing the unique talents of each student. The focus was not on academic performance but on the development of character. Hahn was a key figure in the development of progressive and experiential education, strongly influencing many modern-day alternative educational institutions. He also founded the Atlantic College, Outward Bound, the United World College, and other major worldwide institutions.Included are sections on "The Seven Laws of Salem," "Salem Certificate of Maturity," and "Reproduction of Kurt Hahn's Film Lecture." The "film lecture" includes 49 original mounted black and white photographs in various sizes showing Prince Max von Baden, the faculty, the students, and many shots of the school. Some of the images depict students engaged in activities such as field hockey, skiing, jogging, dancing, archery, or performing a play. Others show students at work and in the classroom.A rare volume. The text for this example is in English, and though there was presumably a German-language version produced as well, we have never encountered another copy.Minor soil and some sunning and minor foxing to the boards, slight rubbing to the spine. Some rippling to the leaves around some photographs due to aging of the glue, photographs not affected. Edges of a few photographs slightly oxidized. In Very Good plus condition overall.
