Book/Printed Material Universal Geography for Children.

About this Item

Title

  • Universal Geography for Children.

Summary

  • Geography textbooks were very popular as basic education tools during the 19th-century National Revival in Bulgaria. Between 1824 and 1878, some 43 different titles or editions of this genre were published. Universal Geography for Children by Ivan Bogorov, or Bogoev (1818--92), appeared early in this tradition. Bogorov's book was a translation from the Russian of a work, also entitled Universal Geography, by Vasilii Bardovskii (1804--74), a teacher of geography at a gymnasium in St. Petersburg and the author of several popular Russian geography textbooks. Bogorov's Mathematical Geography, published separately in 1842 and also a translation from Bardovskii, constitutes part three of the expanded edition of Universal Geography presented here. Universal Geography for Children is thus the third geography text published in Bulgarian, the first being a work by Neofit Bozveli (with language closer to Church Slavic than Bogorov's), and the second the separately issued Mathematical Geography. Bogorov was a famous Bulgarian journalist and the founder of the first two Bulgarian newspapers.
