Four years ago I wrote a post about some Old School Books that belonged to my great, great grandparents. I have them safely tucked away in a closet and will occasionally take them out and look at them.
This week my mother sent me a picture of the two students, so I thought I would share it along with a little recap of the earlier post.
This school book is The National Fifth Reader: containing a treatise on Elocution; Exercises in Reading and Declamation; with Biographical Sketches and Copious Notes.
The book belonged to my great, great grandmother Henrietta Shafer.
The other book is a Math book with a very long title. You can see a copy of the title page in the older post.
The Math book belonged to Alfred Van Duzor.
Alfred and Henrietta married on the last day of 1867 a couple years after he returned home from serving in the Civil War.
Seeing the picture of the two students together help me appreciate the books even more.
