Manuscript copy of a report on the state of education in the province, originally composed in 1789 by the Bishop of Quebec, presented here in a mid-19th-century copy. "In this lengthy report the Committee considers the question of education from the most elementary level to the universities and makes recommendations as to the expansion of the system, using various aspects of the Anglo-American type of education as examples. Some interesting historical background is included with the dates in which various humanities and sciences began to be taught in different schools in the province" - Eberstadt. It does not appear the report was ever published.
A useful Canadian education item.
