From the foreword: Ackermann's Public Schools is the greatest artistic tribute ever paid them. The schools there described and depicted in singularly massive prose and splendidly dignified coloured plates had long existed as part of the English Grammar School tradition. By 1816 [these schools] had established themselves in a rank of their own, the Principal Schools, as Ackermann styled them in his Introduction, the Great Schools in Doctor Johnson's phrase... The Public Schools are part of England's history. Item Type: Art, Prints & Posters. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 5.
