THE KING'S SCHOOL GLOUCESTER., Robertson, David.

Author Name    Robertson, David.

Title   THE KING'S SCHOOL GLOUCESTER.

Publisher    Phillimore, (London, 1974), first edition.

Seller ID   16191

218 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "The King's School continues an educational tradition that has lasted more than 900 years, with only one short break between the dissolution of the medieval Abbey of St. Peters and Henry VIII's establishment of the present school as part of the new Cathedral Church in 1545. A monastic school was well established when Abbot Serlo arrived in 1072, followed by an Almonry School which flourished up to the Dissolution. Through out the 17th and 18th centuries it was one of England's principal grammar schools, to which were sent the sons not only of leading Gloucestershire families but also of families of distinction from all over the country. The 19th century and the early years of this saw the School facing severe financial problems, but their eventual solution by the Ministry of Education and the Church Commissioners has led to revival and rapid expansion in recent years. Former pupils include many men who have achieved positions of national importance, including the joint founders of the Sunday School movement, one of the founders of Methodism, several bishops and an Archbishop of Canterbury, a famous explorer, and the compo ser of the American National Anthem. In these days of widespread questioning of teaching practices, Mr. Robertson's book will be of interest to historians and educationalists as an account of a school which has managed to maintain tradition and high standards over many centuries and to combine them with the most modern teaching." Minor wrinkle at bottom of spine, light browning to parts of endpapers, minor rub marks on front board, tiny speck on fore-edge of textblock. Dust jacket is price clipped, has old price sticker on front flap, tiny tear and wrinkling at top of spine, several heavy creases down fore-edge of flaps, very light rubbing and soiling on rear panel. VG+/G
