A Concise Description of the Endowed Grammar Schools in England and Wales; ornamented with engravings., CARLISLE, Nicholas (1771-1847).
3 CARLISLE, Nicholas (1771-1847). A Concise Description of the Endowed Grammar Schools in England and Wales; ornamented with engravings.
London: Baldwin, Craddock, and Joy, 1818. 1818 
Two volumes. 8vo. xliv, [6], 858; [ii], 983 pp. Chapter head engravings, subscriber's list, index; very occasional foxing (generally very clean). Original half deep red calf, marbled boards, gilt and blind-stamped spine with black gilt-stamped spine label, all edges marbled; a touch of wear to extremities. Signature of Mich Sheand [or McWthend?!] Occidental bookplate; gift of Earle Vonard Weller. Near fine – a choice copy. First and only edition of this informative account of all the grammar schools in England and Wales. "Nicholas Carlisle (1771-1847) entered the Naval Service before becoming Secretary to the Society of Antiquaries in Somerset and dedicating his time to a series of long, detailed and useful compilations. Between 1808 and 1813 he produced topographical dictionaries of England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland. In 1818 he published the pioneering work "A Concise Description of the Endowed Grammar Schools in England and Wales". He subsequently indexed the journal "Archaeologia" and the first 14 reports of the charity commissioners, and was for a time a commissioner himself. The Charity Commission was proposed in 1816 by Henry Brougham (later Lord Chancellor), and its reports, beginning in 1819, form an important source for the history of 19th-century education. Carlisle pre-empted the Charity Commission with the publication of this major work which attempted to give an account of all the grammar schools in England and Wales. To compile this work Carlisle had sent out a circular to all schools asking for information which he then edited into book form. In total Carlisle gives historical and statistical information on some 475 schools, and though he started to compile a second edition to include the schools which had been omitted or which had not replied, this revised version never saw the light of day before his death in 1847. The work originally arose from Carlisle 's interests in heraldry and topography and it is suitably decorated with 68 engravings depicting school seals. There is no comparable contemporary work of documentary information on British schools and this makes it a key and unique resource for the study of the history of education just prior to the Victorian era."

"Nicholas Hans (1888-1969) was born in Russia and studied, and later lectured, in the Faculty of Philology at the University of Odessa during the turbulent decades following 1905. He participated in political life in Odessa during and after the 1917 Revolution, serving as a member of the City Council from 1918. In 1919 Hans left Russia for England and took up studies in the Department of Education, King's College, London. In the 1920s he began to work on the Year Book of Education, continuing this work until the outbreak of the Second World War. During the War he worked as a civil servant in the Censorship Department of the Ministry of Information. In 1946 he was appointed as lecturer at King's College, becoming a Reader in Comparative Education in 1948. During this time he collaborated with Joseph Lauwerys at the Institute of Education in supervising higher degree students and arranging overseas trips, and he continued these activities after his retirement in 1953. He wrote and published on a wide range of topics, including comparative education, educational policy in Russia, and the history of Russian and eighteenth century education." – Univ. of London.
