A History of The Pilgrims' School and Earlier Winchester Choir Schools - John Crook

Phillimore & Co., 1981, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper lightly, unevenly, faded and slightly edgeworn. Top edges of text block tanned and spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The Pilgrims’ School and its predecessor establishments under different names have played an important part in the educational history of Winchester since Saxon times. Quite apart from the obvious interest of this first detailed study of the institution’s past to old boys and their families, the author has set the school’s story in its wider context to make a valuable contribution to Hampshire history and to the history of chorister education from the 10th century. He traces the changing fortunes of the Cathedral School — and the choristers — from earliest days of the monastic Almonry School”.
