Summary:
Copy of Collar and Daniell's first year Latin owned by Burton Rascoe when he was in the Class of 1911 at Shawnee High School in Shawnee, Okla. The printed text in the beginning of the book, from the front endpaper through the first 13 pages, is mostly illegible due to cartoons drawn in ink; printed pictures, postage stamps, typed aphorisms, and clippings pasted in; and ink stamps. Rascoe also added his initials at the end of the table of contents (with a note in pencil that says "my initials in blood") and pasted a picture, possibly his own, over the face of a sculpture of a Roman orator, writing beneath it, "Burtonius Racoius." The pencil notes in the rest of the book mostly concern Latin grammar, with a few more cartoons and extracurricular notes, such as athletic scores. The leaves at the end of the book include more cartoons, drawings, clippings, and cigarette cards.
