More Latin With Laughter, Mrs Sydney Frankenburg, Wm Heinemann 1939 (first pub 1934) 111 pages, unclipped jacket

£50.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Paperback, with attached dustjacket folded with flaps unclipped. A 1930s Latin teaching resource, based on the sound educational principle that the ridiculous will stay in the mind longer than the commonplace. There are illustrations aplenty to depict the absurd situations on which the teaching points are based, drawn by Dorothy H. Rowe. The book itself is well-used, with handling wear and staining on the front, nibbling and small tears to the spine edge. The jacket has detached from the spine on the inside front cover, exposing the webbing. Page block edges are well-worn, tanned and stained. Inside, the pages are very lightly tanned throughout but the text is mostly clean, apart from a few places early in the book where there are a couple of pencil markings under words, which could be rubbed out. There are a couple of places (eg pp 80-81) where the spine has been broken by over-flattening. A collectable item which is also still very useable.
