Full dark green leather binding, with former owner's bookplate and address label. Illustrated with a few full-page engravings, this is a definitive history of the Quaker School in Yorkshire that was founded by Dr John Fothergill in 1779 and occupies a fine suite of Georgian buildings that had originally been constructed as a Foundlings' Hospital (orphanage). Covering the first hundred years, the author includes financial information, analyses of drinking water, and other miscellaneous data which could be of great interest to social historians. xxiv, 355 pp.
