1981.0025.0005 Copy book, Richard Brooke
Have you ever wondered if the education 250 years ago was more rigorous than the education today? The general consensus is “yes,” but I tend to disagree. Do you know about the “Rule of Three”? Or how about reduction? This copybook belonged to Richard Brooke in 1803. I was amazed that a thirteen-year-old was able to complete these complex exercises. The beautiful handwriting throughout was enough to regret leaving Richard Brooke behind, as I had to move on to the next project.
