About this Item

ALLISON, BURGISS. The American Standard of Orthography and Pronunciation, and Improved Dictionary of the English Language. Burlington, N.J.: Printed by John S. Meehan, for D. Allinson [et al], 1815. 12mo. 16, [390] p. Contemporary reversed sheep. Binding soiled and with small damage at bottom of rear hinge, but very tight. Rear blanks wanting, text foxed and dampstained. A good copy only. Allison's dictionary was designed primarily for use in schools, and was based, in part, on Burlington County neighbor Richard S. Coxe's New Critical Pronouncing Dictionary (1813). Allison states in his preface that he intends to publish an unabridged edition of his dictionary in octavo, but this never happened. Allison was a Bordentown native, Baptist minister, and proprietor of a successful Bordentown academy. For more information see Felcone, New Jersey Books, 327. S&S 33832. Bookseller Inventory # 13924
