Book Description London: exclusive use of 1927-28., Westminster Catholic Fed., 1927. Paper, Cloth. 1138, [3: addendum, errata] p.; 24 cm., pb -- Supplementary vol>: [7], [1149]-1510 p., errata tipped-in; 25 cm., green cloth [together with] Supplementary volume : criticisms by non-Catholic experts in history of the Federation's notes on historical text books published by Messrs. Blackie & Son, Ltd. of Glasgow; and, The evolution theory, by Sir Bertram C. A. Windle, F.R.S. -- From the main foreword: `The resentment felt by Catholic parents against the historical text books and readers from which their children attending Council schools were compelled to learn, culminated in an indignant and vigorous protest against those books being forwarded to the Federation on 7th April, 1921, on account of their historical incorrectness, their misrepresentation of Catholic teaching, and , in many cases, their intensely offensive anti-Catholic bias. The protest was referred by the Federation to its Vigilance Committee with instructions that after obtaining the necessary ecclesiastical authorization the matter be taken up with the London County Council. It is surprising and painful to realise that so much rubbish under the guise of history should during all these years have been inflicted on defenceless children. It was found that the historical text books and readers authorized by the London County Council numbered 153 volumes.' --Offending passages with comments are given from books by 13 publishers: Nelson, Arnold, Cassell, Oxford, Harrap, Black, Longmans, Chambers, Marshall, Pitman, Blackie, Macmillan and Philip; annexes (p. 987-1077) cover Papal supremacy, trial by ordeal, inquisition, Wycilf, Mary Tudor, monasteries, ecclesiastical courts, Luther, Chaucer, Celtic Christianity, Catholic Church and Bible, penal laws, &c. -- Indexes. Fair, covers heavily spotted and chafed, bindings solid. Bookseller Inventory # 031980
