NATURE STUDY AND RURAL EDUCATION
In 1903 Anna Botsford Comstock took over the home nature-study correspondence course originated by Bailey, preparing monthly teachers’ leaflets—over 880 pages during the next seven years. These materials formed the basis for her most famous work, the 930-page Handbook of Nature Study, first published in 1911. The Handbook of Nature Study has gone through 25 editions, been translated into 8 languages, and is still in print.
