The English Spelling-Book and Expositor: being a new method of teaching children and adult persons to read, write, and understand the English tongue . The eighteenth edition.
Printed for B. Law and others 1792 - well adorned with scribbles, pen trials, &c., pp. iv, 100, 12mo in 4s original canvas, front free end-paper torn out. Though calling itself the 18th edition, not so many are recorded in ESTC or Alston, and indeed no copy of a first edition has been located: of this edition, NLW only. The second, the first extant, is dated 1734. The author was a writing master in Colchester, and he is still advertising his services at the end of this edition, 60 years on. The dedication, dated 1742 (no edition of this date recorded), is to the 'Subscribers and Trustees . For the Clothing and Tuition of a great Number of Poor Children in the Town of Colchester.' (Alston, IV.417; ESTC T222473)
