Record Book, "Guelph Sabbath School Book". Multi-coloured hard cover with brown leather spine and corners. On front cover, title is printed in black letters: "GUELPH SABBATH SCHOOL BOOK." Inside pages were lined, but the lines are very faded.
Inside the front cover are two stickers, off-white with brown print, which identify the maker's name of book. In the upper left corner is a small square sticket: "ROWSELL, Stationer & c., 31, Cheapside."
In center of page is a second larger sticker which reads: "Hy. & Wm. ROWSELL, STATIONERS, King St., Toronto, U.C. / Agents to Rowsell & Son, CHEAPSIDE, LONDON."
Handwritten in black ink above second sticker: "Guelph Wesleyan Sabbath School / Instituted July 17, 1836."
On page 1 in handwritten black ink: "E.E. Cunningham" is in upper right corner and "Jany 1st, 1844" is written below and to the left of the name.
The book covers the years 1844 to 1849 and is a record of the names of the teachers and students, their attendance in detail, and shows some progression of students through various class levels. Contains the names of many early Guelph families.
Girls and Boys were in separate classes that ran from 1st to 5th and 6th Classes. Numbers are marked beside each name under a date, but unclear as to their meaning.
