A Sequel to Webster’s Elementary Spelling Book; or, A Speller and Definer; Containing a Selection of 12,000 of the Most Useful Words in the English Language . . . the Third Hundredth Thousand.

New York: Published by George F. Cooledge & Brother, (1844). A later edition. 8vo, original printed blue boards, rose linen spine, 172 pages. Text printed on the paste-downs and front free endpapers (including a “Publisher’s Preface” on the verso of the front free endpaper). Paper stock rather browned throughout; board edges rubbed; spine dulled; still, a very good, attractive copy. Item #17549

Though Cooledge and Brother were at this 323 Pearl Street address through 1871, this “third hundredth thousand” printing of the sequel to Noah Webster (from his son William) appears in style and format nearly contemporary to the first publication in 1844. Some pencil ticking against entries in the men’s and women’s names. Includes ads for Lippincott (a joint publisher) on the rear board.

Price: $50.00
