[Baltimore]: n.p., 1933-1937. An uncommonly complete example of one girl's education during the Great Depression. These four uniformly bound volumes collect the schoolwork of Judith Warner during the four years she was a student at Calvert School in Baltimore. Calvert School was founded in 1896 and is still a private school for boys and girls. Judith's lessons included world and US history, geography, art, spelling, and mathematics. Judith appeared to have accomplished her studies with relative ease, as demonstrated by the graded tests and report cards included here. She writes earnestly and neatly about such topics as the Earth's beginnings, landmarks in various cities, famous historical figures, and so on. Some of the assignments were structured as letters to her mother regarding her progress. Bound in dark green cloth with cream title labels printed in black to front covers. Black metal strips bind the spine of the first volume. Handwritten text in pencil and ink; magazine clippings pasted to some pages to illustrate the lessons; a hand-colored illustrations at the beginning of each month. Some additional texts laid in. It seems likely that Judith's bound volumes of her school work were commissioned by her father, James O. Warner, who was the president of a wholesale paper distribution company that served the local book publishing and printing trade. Clean and sound with only light wear to ends and corners. Very good condition. Measures 8.5 x 11 inches. Unpaginated, about 300 pages per volume. EDUC/031722.
