Mangnall's Historical and Miscellaneous Questions

£19.99

Product description

Surprisingly great condition given the age of the book. There's a neat inscription on the first page. The corners are bumped but not too bad. The spine is in good condition but slightly faded. Undated but thought to be late 19th century.

Richmal Mangnall began to attend a successful school of about 70 pupils, at Crofton Hall, a Georgian mansion near Wakefield, Yorkshire, built in about 1750. There it was found possible for a teacher or senior pupil to teach big classes using a system of question and answer. She herself graduated from being a pupil to being a teacher there. The first edition of her Historical and Miscellaneous Questions for the Use of Young People (1798) was printed privately and anonymously for use in the school. It was then taken up by the London publishing firm Longman, whose still anonymous 1800 edition was dedicated to John Kay
