A sweet little book, English Extracts and Exercises is an old fashioned school text book. It contains text passages, comprehension questions and other tasks such as “write out this paragraph, inserting grammar where necessary”.
Title: English Extracts and Exercises Author: F.H. Pritchard Publisher: George G. Harrap & Co. LTD. Publication Year: 1944 Pages: 281 Size: 12.5 cm x 17.9 cm.
This book is in fair condition. The boards are covered with orange cloth, with black embossing and lettering on the spine and the front board. The spine is faded and there are various marks and a few little bumps on the front and back board. Both the front and back board are a bit grubby, this book has clearly had some very dedicated students!
The front of the spine inside the board is cracked but all pages appear to be present. The pages themselves are clean, no apparent pencil marks since the answers are meant to be written in an exercise book or on plain paper.
This book would be lovely for a fan of the education system of the 1940’s.
