Generations of American school children learned spelling and language using this tiny tome by Noah Webster. Originally published in 1788, it was the standard text for over a century. Reading this facsimile reproduction of the 1824 edition---featuring original typeface and language---requires perseverance, but the reward is a deeper appreciation of days gone by.
Considered to be the third-best selling book of all time in America. With its distinctive blue cover, it earned the nickname "the blue-backed speller" and was used over the span of nearly a century. This is an exact reproduction of the 1824 edition.
