9781440048203: How to Amuse Yourself and Others: The American Girl's Handy Book (Classic Reprint)

When a new book of sports for boys has made its appearance ;but it was not until the publication of the American Boy sH andy Book that it occurred to us to write a book for the American boys neglected sisters, which should be equally original and practical. In the Girl sH andy Book, which it has been our endeavor to make peculiarly A merican, we have sought to introduce original and novel ideas, and by their aid to open new avenues of enterprise and enjoyment. One of our objects is to impress upon the minds of the girls the fact that they all possess talent and ability to achieve more than they suppose possible, and we would encourage a belief in the truth of the remark said to have been made by a famous Frenchman :W hen you Americans undertake anything you never stop to ascertain if it be possible, you simply do it. We desire also to help awaken the inventive faculty, usually uncultivated in girls, and, by giving detailed methods of new work and amusements, to put them on the road which they can travel and explore alone.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Written over one hundred years ago this book is not at all politically correct, it is certain that many of the attitudes of the authors would now be considered outdated. It is equally certain however that it was written with the best of intentions, a good heart and lots of fun! Many of the crafts and activities detailed within are currently undergoing a revival as people seek to reconnect with the satisfaction of making beautiful and practical objects themselves. The games too are equally fun, as group entertainment is just as enjoyable now as it was then. In addition to its value for its own sake this book provides us with a fascinating insight into the world of its times. Not only by telling us what young girls should (and therefore by omission should not) have been doing but by giving us the chance to experience the very same activities our great-grandparents might have enjoyed. There is certainly no better way to understand a person, or the past, than by experiencing it. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
