Erasmi Colloquia selecta; or, the select colloquies of Erasmus: with an English translation, as literal as possible. Designed for the use of beginners in the Latin tongue. By John Clark ... First Worcester edition
Worcester: Isaiah Thomas, Jun, 1801. 12mo, pp. 190, [2]; English and Latin in parallel columns; original canvas binding, and an early use of cloth for binding in America. Early ownership inscription of S. Chandler, Aug. 10, 1838, and with the bookplate of Seth Chandler. Canvas bindings of this sort originated in England in the third quarter of the 18th century, and were usually found on text- and school books of the period. This is the earliest example we have encountered on an American imprint. Shaw & Shoemaker 459. The owner of this book was almost certainly Seth Chandler (1806-1889) the Universalist minister, one of the leaders of the Restorationist Controversy within the denomination, minister of the First Parish Congregational Society (Unitarian) in Shirley, Massachusetts for forty-five years, and the author of the first significant history of that town. (See the Dictionary of Unitarian and Universalist Biography).
