    This is an antique First Edition complete set of The Dominion Educator. It was written in Canada in the years after WWI (1914 - 1918); and printed in 1921. Information I have discovered indicates that the formal writing began in 1919. The motivating thought for this comprehensive yet fast work was that WWI, being the war to end all wars, had dramatically transformed Western society, and educators, therefore, needed a transformed education. There are 8 books in the set. This is not a former library copy. It came into my care in 2015. Very rare, it is in Excellent to Mint Vintage condition.

      Interesting, Mrstyndall. <3 I do love old books, as well. I have several vintage, not too many antique, sets ... books. I will look through your older posts to see if you posted any of yours. It’s somewhat a job to bring them down from shelves & photograph, I know. Smiles.
