The Sea and the Sky : The History of the Royal Mathematical School of Christ's Hospital

£34.99

Product description

Published privately in 2015 by the author, Clifford Jones. A scarce title. Printed on glossy paper, highly illustrated in colour.

A thorough and detailed history of the Royal Mathematical School.

Royal Mathematical School is a branch of Christ's Hospital, founded by Charles II. and is currently Christ's Hospital's Maths Department. It was established so that potential sailors could learn navigation and mathematicians could train at the school. Samuel Pepys was closely involved in the foundation, in 1673, with Jonas Moore. The School was integrated into Christ's Hospital, with boys who were pupils being selected aged 11 or 12 and prepared for a career in the Royal Navy.

In very good condition throughout. Clean and fresh with a tight binding. The bottom right hand corner of the cover has been bent over at some stage and is creased.
