In 1699 John Aubrey began to compile notes for a scheme for the
education of young gentlemen. The manuscript he left has never been
published. The editor of the volume organized and re-arranged the
text and has provided an historical Introduction and detailed
notes. Aubrey gives a graphic account of education at the time. He
displays a remarkable breadth of knowledge of the broad issues of
history, law, mechanics, science and pedagogy and he was intensely
curious about the practicalities of teaching language and number,
the effects of puberty, diet, travel, games and music.
