8vo - 24 x 16.5 cm.; xi - 315 pp. Dark green textured cloth with gilt lettering on spine and front board and decorative blind stampings on front and back boards. These volumes form an appendix to the annual report of the Minister of Education and were issued as such. Specific to this volume: "The contents of this volume are of an unusual character. Not only does it contain the records of the educational events of the years 1871-1872, but also a voluminous correspondence, greatly condensed, of a very peremptory, and thinly veiled, censorious character, which took place in the latter year, between leading members of the government, the Council of Public Instruction, and the Chief Superintendent of Education" - taken from the preface. This copy shows a slight crinkling of the cloth at the spine head and tail, else near fine. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
