The scientist Richard Lovell Edgeworth (1744-1817), educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and Oxford, was known for his significant mechanical inventions. He was a Member of the Lunar Society of Birmingham, where he exchanged ideas with other scientists, including James Watt. However, Edgeworth was also greatly interested in education: drawing on his own experiences of raising twenty children (by his four wives), in 1788 he published, with his daughter, the poet Maria Edgeworth, his famous two-volume Practical Education (also reissued in this series). The work was very influential, and led to this book, published in 1809, a series of essays on professional education (again written in co-operation with Maria), dealing with the nature of different occupations in a state. He discusses education for the professions, including the Church, the Army and the Law, but also refers to the education of statesmen, gentlemen and even princes

Essays on practical education by Maria Edgeworth( Book )

Published as two volumes in 1798, Maria Edgeworth Practical Education was written collaboratively with her father, Richard Lovell Edgeworth. Edgeworth and her father wrote the collection of essays in an effort to highlight their approach to parenting and child-rearing. The Edgeworths believed in a moralistic method to raising children wherein children were taught the principles of right and wrong, and Practical Education reflects these beliefs. The book began as a series of reflections and anecdotes from Richard Edgeworth experiences raising his 22 children, but Maria additions quickly transformed the book from anecdotes to a collection of lessons and principles. Eventually, Richard and Maria decided that the book should work as a supplement to Maria short children stories. In addition to providing a set of principles to guide the education of children, Maria and her father set forth many ideas on how to teach children effectively and efficiently. In all, Practical Education is an ideal book for anyone interested in Maria Edgeworth notions of how to properly educate youth
