Light soiling and a few minor stains to exterior, some wear to spine ends, light toning to interior, "Compliments of M.A. Hudson, May 28, 1893" in pencil to verso of title page. $250. * Only edition. Shedd was a professor of modern languages at the University of Rochester until his decidedly socialist leanings forced him to resign in 1912. He became an active member in the American socialist movement of the early twentieth century, with a particular focus on pedagogy and youth outreach. In this address, Shedd decries "the most numerous class" of what he terms "uncaged criminals," namely, "the Time-killers-the squanderers, the robbers, the murderers of Time!" An interesting footnote to the philosophy of a controversial figure in American education.
