The Improvement of the Mind by Isaac Watts

"Few books have been perused by me with greater pleasure than his 'Improvement of the Mind'; of which the radical principles may indeed be found in 'Locke's 'Conduct of The Understanding'; but they are so expanded and ramified by Watts, as to confer on him the merit of a work in the highest degree useful and pleasing. Whoever has the care of instructing others may be charged with deficiency in his duty if this book is not recommended."
