From the History Information Station:Object: Twelve books published in Spain in the late 18th century.History: In the early days of Alta California, there were no established schools outside the missions. What little education the children of Californios obtained, they got from family members. Books typically dealt with religious topics, for novels were considered inappropriate reading for young people. Later, California's Mexican governors encouraged education, but schools were limited in number and quality. Teachers were often retired soldiers whose qualifications were any knowledge at all of reading, writing, and "figuring." Their primary teacher's aid was the disciplina, a whip made of nine knotted cords, which they freely applied. If you would like to know the titles and authors of any or all of these books, they are listed on the next screen.Museum PurchaseThe Three R'sLa Ciencia del Christiano, by El P. Juan de Arana.
