"Gifford had read only some ballads, the black-letter romance Parismus and Parismenus, some odd loose magazines of his mother"s, the Bible (which he studied with his grandmother) and ""The Imitation of Christ"" (read to his mother on her deathbed). He then learned algebra by surreptitiously reading Fenning"s textbook: his master"s son owned the book and had deliberately hidden it from him".
