This library quality binding of Ourselves, Book II, Self-Direction contains a new typeface and margins while preserving the original pagination.  It also contains the original Preface by Charlotte Mason as well as the original Index and Chapter Questions.

According to the historical PNEU programmes Ourselves, Book I, was read by students in Forms III and IV (about 7th-9th grade) covering approximately 20-25 pages per term over 9 terms, amounting to 3 years.  Book II was continued in Form V (about 10th-11th grade) with students reading approximately 30 pages each term for six terms, amounting to 2 years.  Mason explains in the Preface that Book I should be read before Book II.
