The American Spelling Book
Originally published in 1788, this book is considered to be the second-best-selling book in American history, after the Bible. Bound in a distinctive green-blue cover and nicknamed "the blue-backed speller," it was written by Noah Webster and used by American children as a standard text for nearly a century. This facsimile reproduction of the 1824 edition comes complete with the traditional binding, recapturing schooldays gone by. 168 pp. Hardcover
