Throwback Thursday: sixty years ago

A couple of days ago my husband pulled a book out of the bookcase. He had not opened it, let alone read it, for a very, very long time.  He said it was actually quite good, despite the warning he wrote on the flyleaf sixty years ago this fall.

[I googled Henry I. Christ  and Andrew Jackson High School. Christ wrote more than 100 books:  English and literature textbooks and adaptations of classics. AJHS no longer exists.]

 Third Form is the prep school equivalent of freshman.

And here is the student himself from the 1955 yearbook, published the spring of his Third Form.


  1. I LOVE old books, and it is even better when I can learn a little about their author and it's history :)

  2. Love your story AND also love what is written inside the book. Great humour!


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
