The Petie Schole by Francis Clement

Published in 1587, The Petie Schole by Francis Clement claims to contain “a method to enable both a childe yup reade perfectly within one moneth, & also the unperfect to write English aright”

Having read most of this last night, I’m not sure I’d say it was a truly complete method, but I’ll be giving it a go in the hedge school at Kentwell this afternoon 🙂
