About book: ''A collection of Tributes, reminiscences and Other Items By Old Boys, masters, friends and critics of a Preparatory School Near Oxford which completes its first Hundred Years in The Summer of 1964. A famous preparatory school for boys, Summer Fields, Oxford, celebrates its centenary in 1964. Among its many notable Old Boys have been Harold Macmillan, Bernard Darwin, Mgr Ronald Knox, Lord Wavell, Julian Slade, Julian Amery, John Lehmann, Victor Pasmore, Sir Harold Caccia and many more. Richard Usborne, himself an 'Old Boy', has collected reminiscences and other material from nearly a hundred sources and has edited these into an anthology, partly historical, largely nostalgic, intermittently critical and entirely readable not only to Summerfieldians and their kin, but also to anyone interested in the private school education of the eight to thirteen year old boy from the 1860s onwards" Also contains a separate booklet as Index and a note from the Editor dated April 21st 1964.''.
