Chicago: 1865. 91, [1 errata], 36pp. Stitched in original printed wrappers. Minor wear, Near Fine.
The Annual Report occupies the first 91 pages, followed by 'Rules of the Board of Education of the City of Adopted August 30, 1865,' with its own title page but without imprint. Although they are bound together here, Ante-Fire Imprints records them separately. The Report provides a good look at mid-19th century schooling in the Midwest's greatest city, filled with information on pupils, teachers, curriculum, attendance and truancy, school districts, and regulations.
