Item description

The Hoosier Schoolmaster, A Story of Backwoods Life in Indiana. The Hoosier Schoolmaster was originially written and printed in 1871. The book was illustrated by W. E. B. Starkweather with character sketches by F. Opper. The 5" by 7" frontis illustration is very collectable for framing. The book is in good condition with some edge/corner wear and loose binding that can be repaired. It is missing the title page in this 281 page book. One middle page has a large chunk torn from the side. Old School library books with pastedown on inside front cover. Book pocket and date slip on back inside cover. I think this is the 1892 edition from the preface date and information contained in the preface. Hoosier dialect- the folkspeech of the southern part of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois of the 1850's. Preface: "The folk-speech of the Ohio Tiver country has many features in common with that of the eastern Middle States, while it received but little from the dignified Eightreenth-century English of eastern Virginia. There are distinct traces of the North-Irish in the idioms and in the peculiar pronunciations." TEACHERS AND PARENTS: LOOKING FOR MORE GOOD DEALS ON CHILDRENS BOOKS?
