Eton renewed

£19.99

Product description

John Murray, London
Card, Tim
Eton is the one of the country's leading public schools. The present Vice-Provost has written this history of Eton, beginning with the time when pressure was falling on all the old public schools to reform themselves and end the Classics' stranglehold on the curriculum. He explains the curious finances of the place, evokes the concerns and triumphs of the boys' lives and passes judgement on such controversial members of staff as Oscar Browning and William Johnson Cory, as well as the various Headmasters from the giant Warre to the ill-starred Chenevix-Trench. The story ends with the transformation of Eton over the last thirty years in response to changing social and educational pressures.

Condition: Used, Good. The dustcover has faded, but there is otherwise no significant wear. Includes several black and white plates.
