About this Item

Full-leather binding. 4 1/4" x 7". Later printing (1816) of book first published in 1799 by a grammarian who became the best-selling author in the world of the first half of the 19th century. Leather is worn (but not worn through), binding is solid. Some accidental dog-earing to occasional pages and light tanning of paper, and a few steel-pen markings in margins. The "English Reader" was Lindley's most popular work; Abraham Lincoln praised it as "the best schoolbook ever put in the hands of an American youth." The English Reader dominated the American market for readers until the McGuffey Readers came along in 1836. 253 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 74615
