Handmade book of teacher Ruth Hoffman's sixth grade class reports on George Washington


Bryson City School (NC): Made by hand, 1929.

32 looseleaf sheets bound with two brads; construction paper covers decorated with hand-cut letters and an inset portrait of Washington. In Good to Very Good condition: Covers are sunned and a little beaten up, including a few small closed tears to the rear cover. A collection of student reports done as short essays, collages and poems. It leads with the A+ poem "My Hatchet" (some nuanced slant rhymes), several versions of the cherry tree story, heroic odes, biographical and historical commentary, goofy cutout illustrations, and conjecture on the source of Washington's military might (Ruby Nichols says it's Christianity). The cutout letters are especially wonderful. Identified as Bryson City School, presumed North Carolina.
