The New-England Primer, or an Easy and Pleasant Guide to the Art of Reading . . .

Concord, N. H. Published and Sold by I. and W. R. Hill, at their Book-Store, 1813. Original printed blue wrappers, [i], 47 pages (first and last leaf mounted to the wrappers). Frontis, illus. Spine perished, wrappers somewhat worn and soiled; a good, sound copy. Item #19264

With the wrapper publication date of 1818 and the sole imprint of Isaac Hill. Even by the elastic standards of early American primers, the woodcuts of this edition are notably artless--to the point, at times, of near illegibility. Still, a nice early New-England Primer for all that. Heartman 258; American Imprints 44983.
