19th century reprint of early American and also Colonial printing. 16mo. 11.5 by 8.5 cm. Unpaginated, about 80 pages. Really a composite of two works, the second being, The New England Primer Improved, printed in Boston by Edward Draper in 1777. This primer has woodcut vignettes for each letter of alphabet. Woodcut plate portrait of John Hancock, and one other woodcut. Religious, or pietistic, fare laced throughout. The publication reflects the growing interest in American history of the day. Calf spine heavily worn, with holes and loss. Light dampstain and other light soiling of the leaves. Still, on balance, this is an appealing copy, and one in which the defects are best to leave untouched, in our judgment. Bookseller Inventory #
