THE FREE SCHOOL SYSTEM OF SOUTH CAROLINA. FROM THE SOUTHERN QUARTERLY REVIEW.

Columbia, S.C. Printed and Published by E.H. Britton, 1856. 40pp, disbound, trimmed closely but no text affected. Scattered foxing, ink bleeding on last leaf but text easily legible. Good+.

A very scarce, enthusiastic examination of the history and development of South Carolina's free school system, a noble effort to rescue "thousands from the doom of hopeless ignorance, and the first step in the ascent of others to honours, usefulness, and fame. It has let down a rope into the sinks of poverty by which a few gifted minds have been drawn up into the clear light and bracing air of learning, refinement, and elegance."
Not in Turnbull or Sabin. OCLC 18152700 [1- Clemson] [as of December 2012]. Item #29653
