About this Item

Barrow, later Archdeacon of Nottingham, originally composed this essay while at Queen?s College, Oxford; it was enlarged for its first publication in 1802 and then again for this second edition. Questions of corporal punishment, religious instruction, early education, the desirability of teaching the classics, and the merits of public schools as opposed to domestic education are addressed; the two new chapters added to this edition consider dramatic performances in schools (ill-advised and likely to lead to undesirable results, according to the author) and the state of English universities. 12mo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). 2 vols. I: xxiv, 342, [2 (1 adv.)] pp. II: iv, 412 pp. NSTC B758. Contemporary half calf with marbled paper?covered sides, spines with later gilt-stamped leather labels; spines slightly darkened, corners and spine extremities rubbed. Pencilled bracketing and marks of emphasis; some light to moderate foxing. Bookseller Inventory # 20026
