STUDENT NOTEBOOKS AT COLONIAL HARVARD: MANUSCRIPTS AND EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE, 1650-1740.
Kennedy, Rick, Lucia Zaucha Knoles and Thomas Knoles
Four studies relating to student manuscript production at Harvard College before 1740 that first appeared in the Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society (Volume 109) are printed here. '" In Usum Pupillorum": Student-Transcribed Texts at Harvard College Before 1740' by Thomas Knoles and Lucia Zaucha Knoles describes a Harvard education during the college's first hundred years, when many of the texts used in instruction were manuscripts and were transmitted in manuscript form only. In 'Increase Mather's "Catechismus Logicus": An Analysis of the Role of a Ramist Catechism,' Rick Kennedy and Thomas Knoles describe the brief Latin logic catechism that was produced in 1675 for the use of undergraduates at Harvard College. Intended for students to copy into their blank books, the work exemplifies the kind of rudimentary Ramist textbook used in seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century New England. 'Increase Mather's "Catechismus Logicus'" is these authors' edited and annotated translation of the 1675 manuscript. 'Student-Transcribed Text at Harvard College Before 1 740: A Checklist' is a list of all known surviving manuscript notebooks containing manuscript transcriptions with indexes of texts and their transcribers that was prepared by Thomas Knoles.
