A History of Kibworth Beauchamp Grammar School - Bernard Elliott
Green & Co., Market Harborough
Closed tears to the crown of the dustjacket spine. The dustjacket itself is slightly darkened towards the spine. The end papers of the main book block have become damp stained into forming a darkened strip. There is slight bumping on the crown and foot of the book's spine. The rest of the pages are as new.
The author Bernard Elliott, taking inspiration from Rev J. B. Hildebrand's previous 'A history of the school' set out to write a modern, more complete history of the school. Using the documents stored in the school chest, and with the cooperation of both John Elliott, the headmaster from 1927 to 1955 and to Mr. L. T. Daw, the head master at the time, Elliott writes the of the school's traditions and "A fairly full account of the school's history", with the purpose of boosting the school's renown as at the time of writing, 1958, the school was experiencing a decline in popularity.
A great and very in depth book for historians and previous students of Kibworth alike, including everything from the origin and founding of the school to the student honour roll, this book provides an unparalleled source of knowledge on the school and it's expansive history.
