About this Item

Franklin College was ancestor to today's Franklin & Marshall College and its Charter suggests much of its flavor while confirming something often forgotten about the current institution's background: This opens with recitation of, "An act to incorporate and endow => the German College and Charity School, in the Borough and County of Lancaster, in this State." The College's founding trustees are a Who's Who of Pennsylvanians, both English and German; future trustees are to be chosen half from Lutherans and the other half from the Reformed or "Calvinist Church"; youth are to be instructed in the "German, English, Latin, Greek, and other learned languages" (note order); one-sixth of the endowment is to be used to support an adjunct children's charity school; etc. => An interesting 19th-century ethnic-educational ephemerum, apparently not in NUC Pre-1956. 8vo. 7 pp. Sewn; in original yellow wrappers. Very good. Bookseller Inventory # 9724
