The Sources of a Science of Education
NY, Horace Liveright, (1929). The first volume in the Kappa Delta Pi Lecture Series, in which Dewey argues for education to be a disciplined and evolving science. Owner name of Theodore F. Lentz, Jr. on the front flyleaf, and together with Lentz's own book, An Experimental Method for the Discovery and Development of Tests of Character [NY: Columbia University, 1925]. Lentz's book has a date stamp on the rear cover and a few small edge tears; very good in wrappers. Dewey's book has a bookplate (not Lentz's) on the front pastedown and several small, penciled marginal marks; near fine in a very good dust jacket with tiny edge chips and one small, internally tape-mended edge tear.
