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
